ABV: 47% ABV
Nose: Rich juniper, sweet lemon zest, faint anise, hint of ethanol.
Taste: Sweet and viscous – ethanol in check. Sweet vanilla bean, lemon, berry and rich juniper with an absence of pine notes. Sweet for what it is, and the mouth feel is satisfying.
Finish: Medium in length, a bit of ethanol but well behaved. Juniper, white pepper, orange peel and some creaminess.
Overall: I really like this, and think the decision to bottle at 47% was very wise, which is strange given what the rest of the world has to deal with. This has become a favorite of mine when I feel like spending a few extra bucks on a macro produced release.
