Light amber hue, pungent anise notes on the nose and tongue. With time, the flavor opens up to more cereal-like and oaky tones, finishing with an invigorating hit of cinnamon. A real live-wire of a whiskey.

Amber color. Toasty brown spice aromas suggest nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon with a supple, dryish medium-to-full body and a peppercorn, cream, piney incense, and herbed salt accented finish. Interesting, almost tastes like a gin hot toddy.
