Each batch will vary in ABV, ranging between 118 and 125 proof.

"Starting with a warm toasted-marshmallow and oak scent, this creamy whiskey's heat comes with lots of pepper. The taste isn't any different: peppery and delightful, hot, and full of dark stone fruit. Fennel and anise hang out on the back end with a pleasant acidity. This is a whiskey to sip and enjoy as it develops."
