Brilliant clear color. Vaporous aromas of caulk and rubber cement, sherried drizzled tropical fruits, mesquite and ancho, and horseradish and smoked paprika with a tannic, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, refreshing, medium-long marinated carrot and celeriac, vinegar-forward cole slaw, chestnut brittle, and cigar tobacco finish. An appetizing savory baijiu.
