Brilliant clear color. Vaporous aromas and flavors of bamboo stalks and leaves, rubber cemented wood, maple syrup, and homemade paper with a tannic, vibrant, off-dry medium-to-full body and a peppery, appealing, medium-long finish revealing suggestions of chestnut mocha syrup, grilled citrus and root vegetables, radishes and peppers, and minerals finish. A very lively and refreshing baijiu with fire and style.
