Appearance: Clear as molten glass in the bottle - it is a beautiful thing. Upon swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass which showcases its viscosity. Sitting in the glass it looks like a small puddle of sap or nectar. Quite a striking contrast to most clear spirits such as vodka.
First Impression: A dry bouquet, hints of lime, citrus, cucumber salt, and savory herbs, and on more warming: char, creosote, some spiciness, and a faint trace of balsam.
Taste: Dry and sweet at the same time somehow, lime, citrus, leather and dry smoke, almost a tannic mouth feel, whispers down the throat and then leaves a rather delicate warmth considering the 80 proof with a smoky spicy aftertaste. Like a mesquite campfire, this is amazingly complex.
