Tasting Notes

"The aromas and tastes here are actually more akin to a mezcal with clay, meaty smoke, a little metallic note and mint. Some moss and dried herbs are found as well. The palate is quick to get to the finish line where you'll find a coffee bitter note and gentle peat smoke. A bit of an odd one, but not a bad one. "
