Tasting Notes

"A savory warm breakfast cereal aroma (think Malt-O-Meal). The feeling in your mouth is full and soft with a moderate amount of oil. Slightly sweet, but it is not an obvious sweetness. Again, think breakfast cereal sweet. Juniper is faint. Slight sharpness in the middle there; just the alcohol telling you it's there. Pretty easy to drink. Maybe too easy? Not a bad thing, in our estimation."
