Tasting Notes

"Molasses, cedar, and roasted agave appear first on the nose, followed by rye spice, honey, and mangoes. The palate has a flourish of heat and showcases barrel char, mint, bitter baker's chocolate, tart lingonberries, and green bell pepper. The finish offers an herbal-grassy side with agave syrup and lemongrass, as well as orange zest, and maple. The tequila's impact at times overshadows the whiskey itself."
