Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

A refined nose of freshly baked wheat bread and ginger cookie dominates this striking spirit. The palate is powerful with further expressions of wet clay, mossy earth, and green lychee fruit. The high alcohol is deftly incorporated, and the finish is long but smooth.
