Tasting Notes

"On the nose it is subdued and faint, and has the chemical-mint scent of paste, as well as alcohol, wood grain, and slightly past-their-prime flowers. Like most young spirits, it drinks raw and unbalanced. The palate is full of raw grain, grass, bitter mint, and chocolate and is dominated by wood and sawdust. "
