Brilliant clear color. Aromas and flavors of roasted nut brittle, chicory coffee, inky pepper, and dishwasher detergent tablet and mothballs with a lightly tannic, lively, fruity full body and a hot, captivating, long finish that shows notes of mint jelly on fig Newton, spiced nuts, peppery plum brandy, and clay finish. A solid Baijiu for adventure-seeking nights.
