Brilliant clear color. Vaporous aromas of permanent marker and spar on wood, dried flowers and mossy bark, cashew fruit and nuts, and foam rubber with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a peppery, intriguing, medium-long honeyed root vegetable, bamboo shoots, and mushrooms, white pepper, whole wheat baklava, and second steeped loose tea finish. A vivacious, grainy, earthy baijiu with fun cocktail and pairing possibilities.
