Warm and inviting nose of mocha and white tea. The liquid is pillow-soft and yet weighty on the palate. The subtle wake-up call of white pepper occurs on the tip of the tongue but the spread of cocoa, white tea and black licorice loves to linger. The spirit goes through 40 feet of birch wood charcoal filters - distilled from winter wheat and rye and blended with pure Sikhote-Alin mountain water. A stand-out.
