The smell is sweet with a hint of citrus. A long inhale tickles the nostrils in a pleasant manner. The Dragon's Milk has made quit the impact on the aroma. Neat it is dull in the beginning, but lingers on the sides of the tongue afterwards. It does not burn going down, but it has an aftertaste that is not as pleasant as I would like. It transitions to the back of the tongue and throat. It is actually a bit dull. Heavy on the tongue but not a very satisfying finish. On ice, or with some water, the Dragon's Milk comes out much more. The taste is more pleasant than the neat option. It hits the back of the tongue and lingers a bit, but is an easier, milder drink.
