Tasting Notes

"No hiding from the Stagg'ering proof on the nose. Beneath the heat though is cocoa, cornbread, rye spice, and spearmint. Big palate offers a rush of heat. Search around it for vanilla, cedar, and light toffee, along with more of the medicinal side. Somewhat hot on the finish with cinnamon, cloves, and cocoa. Adding water is highly recommended, offering a richer and rounder profile."
