Sanitizing alcohol and chili peppers on the nose. The front palate has heavy body and viscosity that coat the mouth. Cinnamon deep fried tortillas and roasted corn lead to caramelized pear and burnt sugar. The finish is medium in length.
Aromas of model airplane glue - like the stuff Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times would have rolling around in his van. Slightly bitter flavor; less pleasing than the smell. Add a drop of water and INSTANTLY it smells like fresh baked bread and bitterness mostly gone. Very interesting expression!!
Sticky Elmer’s glue on the nose. Acetone. Tastes like rotten Meyer lemons, thrown on the grill in attempts to save them.
I smell so much glue I'm getting flashbacks to pre-K
