Appearance: Interesting gold / amber color in the bottle - about the same color as a bourbon (but not a scotch) of the same age. A honey oak or smokey brown color.
First Impression: Brine, phenol, mesquite sap, salt.
Taste: Brine, herbs de Provence, salt, smoke, oily, almost like duck fat cooked over a smoky wood fire- saltpeter/niter, alkali, slick mouth feel, almost paradoxical sweet/bitter and definite viscosity.
