Appearance: Dark amber, if it was maple syrup, it would be a medium amber. It is a beautiful thing! Upon swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass. Sitting in the glass, it looks like a small puddle of sap or nectar.
First Impression: Very smoky and more understated than the others. Smells like a tin of just opened tobacco, with strong phenol and smoke.
Taste: Dry and sweet at the same time somehow, with lime, leather, oil, smoke, and a suggestion of mint. Resinous on the tongue. It whispers down the throat, and then leaves a rather delicate burn considering its 80 proof, with a smoky spicy aftertaste like really good tobacco.
