Brilliant clear color. Vaporous aromas and flavors of molasses licorice cake, hot pepper and soy, vanilla nut brittle, and caraway rye with a tannic, racy, fruity full body and a hot, elegant, very long ginseng gum, horchata, hot pepper, and taro root gelato finish. A bombastic, high-impact baijiu that makes an impression.
