Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Notes:

This spirit shows an effusive nose of coconut husk, lychee fruit, cantaloupe, and roasted grains. When tasted, a surprising amount of sweetness becomes apparent with the fruit flavors reasserting themselves on the tongue. The high proof becomes apparent as the finish is long, dry, and mineral.
