Batch AE-XXSLB. Bottle 001/600. 46.4% ABV.

This bottle tends to shift as you make your way through it, especially on the nose: Early on it’s French crêpes and maple syrup, then raisin toast and plum pudding, now ripe cantaloupe and vanilla ice cream. On the palate a tasty lactic flavour adds depth to notes of brown sugar, Portuguese egg custard, and green banana. The finish is spicy and floral with black pepper and damp moss. A delicious ensamble from Don Baltazar.
