The nose is on the candy side of the spectrum with some soapy notes. The palate starts in with thick molasses, coffee, anise, leather and tobacco with a syrupy mouthfeel. The finish has gingerbread, molasses and oak. Despite the high proof, water seems to throw it off balance, bringing in some acid and some bitterness. Sip it straight if you can.

 

This is great. The flavor is complex and pretty unique with the heavy molasses/gingerbread notes.
