Liquor is medium-bodied, brisk and slightly astringent at the end. Mellow notes resembling sweet vegetables (green beans) immediately hit the palate and dominate throughout the length of the cup. One gets sweet notes of wood in the middle which however is short lived. The cup ends on a dry finish with a caramalised aftertaste.
