87
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Airy mountain wildflower, lemon curd, soy sauce, pumpkin seed, and rice cake are dominant on the nose of this complex spirit. Musky tropical fruit and powerful anise come forward on the palate, with hints of bone broth and an almost tannic structure. Long and elegant.
