ABV: 48% ABV
Nose: Sweet and enticing, oh my. Crisp and effervescent, great grain here. Orange peel, rising bread, strong pepper and a really well integrated juniper note.
Taste: Rich on the palate, strong and bold, lots of juniper, white pepper, lime. Bold, powerful, some heat.
Finish: Long, sweet cream, pepper, lemon peel and rich cardamom. There’s a lovely almond note that carries, really elegant finish on this one.
Overall: Delectable and enticing. Powerful but not too brash, loaded with flavors I love. Really good stuff. I’m a bit surprised that I didn’t know about these folks in Chicago until now, but when Covid lifts, it’s road trip time for me.
Thanks for reading!
