Nose: Hint of lemon. Cinnamon. Banana. Medium smoke.

Palate: Viscous mouth feel but nice. Crayon wax. Chocolate orange. Hot but not overly stiff – it works really well and potentially dangerous. A good, salty and smoky finish that sizzles and lasts.

This was a 1 oz sample (shout out to Tahona Mercado) but for the price point I’d definitely pony up for a bottle of this stuff.

Pretty salty but I like it. Raisins, table salt, cinnamon, brown sugar, leather, and candied orange peel. The more I had the more I liked it, I only had 1oz though.

Lot 1HEC0520. 50.2%. Pretty clean on the nose, with some light hints of flowers and fresh rain. The palate is thick, almost syrupy, and this really coats everything in the mouth. There are a lot of bass notes on this, and not much treble. As a bass player, that’s what I enjoy most in music, and it’s surprising to find it in this spirit. There are some caramel and red apple notes on the palate, but they lurk deep in this spirit. The surface level has some interesting hints of orange slice candies and parsley. Unfortunately, I only had a small dram of this, but I’d like to try more.
