Tasting Notes

"Big alcohol burn on the nose with light vanilla, pepper, petrol and the slightest hint of agave. On the palate, this is surprisingly sweet, with vanilla, caramel and agave with a big peppery punch. To finish, more pepper and a hint of bitter herbs with a touch of minerality before disappearing."
