Gold color. Aromas of bison grass, fresh tarragon, honey, caramelized plantains, black olives, lavender, and toasty biscuit with a velvety, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, complex, medium-long hot cinnamon candies, golden apple, spiced peach chutney, and maple glazed bacon finish. A smooth and spicy Wood Aged Cachaca best for sipping neat or in stirred cocktails; distinctive and conversation-worthy.
