Bottle from Healthy Spirits (via joshuahfl). Pours hazy gold with a few bubbles. Aroma is deeply warming alcohol with something like persimmon notes. Full bodied. There’s a lot of caramel, moderate heat. Otherwise flavor is candied fruit. Would be interesting to see how this aged, but sadly this is my only bottle!
