Bit of a harsh nose. Lot of alcohol hiding the agave, caramel, and ripe banana. Also hot on the tongue but a nice flavor overall. Oak, pepper, agave flavors. Short, slightly bitter finish.

Nose: Butterscotch, agave and ripe fruit delivered with a mild alcohol punch. Some oak blends in unobtrusively. A tiny earthy hint. The palate presents with butterscotch and pepper. Some maple and nutmeg. Finish: Pepper heat, sweetness and an acceptable bitter note linger for quite some time. The oak becomes more prominent on the finish.
