Sweet on the nose. Like walking through a caramel factory. Wow, I love this. Either I haven't had a good tasting in a while or the spirit is world class. Sweet and explosive in a good way.

Smells sweet. Am I about to eat candy? No, but the taste is much sweeter than other spirits I've tried tonight. Dark cherry, almond, vanilla are the flavor I get. I love this, tastes great and I could drink it every day.

Interestingly, I get no aroma in this one other than alcohol. Drinking this instantly reminds me of taffy. Caramel hints, toffee, popcorn, and bark. Adding water opened up a creamy nose.

Smells subtle, almost nothing at all on the nose. But when you take the first sip, it's pretty strong. Bitter, like tree bark. It has a punch and because of that it's hard to find the palette.

Smells lovely, like caramel candy and fire. I thought it's taste the same but its much more bland than its smell. Easy to drink.

Absinthe. That's what I immediately think of when smelling this. Once drinking, I sum this up as "Christmas in a bottle."
