Tasting Notes

"Brilliant amber in color with flecks of reflective gold. Clove, distinct oak, and white pepper is found on the nose along with caramel and cinnamon. Cooked agave characterizes the initial taste. The mouthfeel is slightly buttery and smooth, leaving a well-rounded, pleasant earthy finish."
