Brilliant amber color. Interesting aromas of pipe tobacco, pencil shavings and halvah, toasted raisin bran and pumpernickel nut bread, and playdoh and clay with a silky, flat, dryish watery body and a peppery, engaging, buoyant smoked nuts and raisins, lapsang tea, cedar bark and dust, and peppercorns finish. A curious, lightly smoked, lightly bitter whisky.

Flavored spirits are made with various additives such as honey or grape spirits; examples include aguardiente from Portugal and Colombia as well as certain rums. They should not be confused with fruit-flavored brandies or liqueurs.
