Mattle black bottle. 1oz pour at Jack Rose in DC. $14-15. Into Glencairn glass. Pours a clear light golden to straw/Sauternes. Timid beads along the glass. Nose at first is rough with tire rubber and leather and old car. Moves to Ardbeg-like honeysuckle, vanilla, herbal softness. Lots of old library and even musty books. No heat or flammables even at 60%. Even some sweet orange juice / citrus, jasmine. Taste is hot up front then settles down then a long throat burn for awhile. Ahh! Finishes with peppercorn crusted bacon, melted fat. Nose moves to really thick vanilla and pecan pie. Better nose. Harsher finish. Enjoyable, but very hot.
