Tasting Notes

"There's a fair amount of alcohol nose, along with some smoke and mild baking spices. On the palate, more heat, more smoke and a touch of milk and white chocolate. Overall, this is mostly a neutral spirit with a light body, which is the intended style. The finish is dry and short with a pleasant, faint ginger spiciness."
