Brilliant clear color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate-flavored latte, lawnmower bag, dried exotic fruits and flowers, and ironed wet linen with a tannic, vibrant, off-dry full body and a peppery, interesting, long macadamia brittle, milk and honeyed white tea with muffins, grilled citrus and sweet potatoes, and minerals finish. A zesty, flavorful whisky-like baijiu with lots of serving possibilities.
