The dry leaves are visually pleasing: they are large and gnarly. The smell is sweet -reminiscent of the field of wild flowers in the spring – and spicy.
The liquor is very fragrant: fall leaves, burned leaves, spices, sandal wood, honey. The smell is quite distinct and uplifting.The taste is mild but complex. There is some woodiness and sourness, plus malt, floral and honey notes and lots of other, harder to identify things. It also has a lingering and pleasant aftertaste.
It was a sampler and I will certainly order it again and in larger quantity. A keeper.
