Exotic and unusual, this is a unique beverage. Intense perfumed aromas of juniper, pine and herbs. Taste is complex and somewhat spicy.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - The aromatics are bold offering scents of bark and roots, cedar, coriander, anise, rosemary, jasmine, and thyme with hints of tarragon and green tea. Rich and sweet with a bright peppery balance. A classic. (Mar 2012)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - The bouquet is vibrant, prickly, and displays cedar, coriander, cardamom, aniseed, jasmine, rosemary, sage, basil and other botanicals. The palate is lushly textured, herbal sweet, peppery, and minerally. Sublime aftertaste.
