Tasting Notes

Nose

Warm cowhide and chamois leather, cow gum. Ginger biscuit dunked in coffee. Dried cinnamon stick and baharat spice - a blend of clove, nutmeg, paprika and cardamom.

Palate

A bitterness of quinine and green tea. Damp tobacco and then cheroots. Water made the green tea too bitter for me - like fresh pine sap.

Finish

The bitterness overtakes, then becomes buttery.

Comment

I could see this in a cocktail to counter the sharpness with some sweetness.
