Appearance: Dark amber color in the bottle. If it was maple syrup, it would be a dark amber. It is a beautiful thing! On swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass which belies its viscosity. Sitting in the glass, it looks like a small puddle of sap or nectar. First Impression: Smoky with a hint of sweetness to it, more than the others. Smells like a cross between a heavily peated malt, and a cognac because of the sweetness that comes across. Resin, almost pine tar notes towards the end. Taste: Smoke and lime, and a suggestions of mint and leather. Resinous on the tongue, and mouth feel. It whispers down the throat and then leaves a rather delicate burn considering the 80 proof, with a smoky spicy aftertaste with a long but delicate finish- a spicy tingle that makes you want just a bit more.
