On the nose: The ethanol here is hot and peppery, but not as hot as the Inchgower. It really takes a while for heat to subside. Along the way, I get light aromas of saba banana peel, brown sugar, salted caramel, and orange-flavored candy. Like the Inchgower, the heat really gets in the way. Some sapodilla, guava, and herbs come out.
In the mouth: Really hot here as well. The burn makes everything taste obscured. Initially, I get light notes of orange peel, salted vanilla, brown sugar, and sapodilla followed by an oilier than usual texture. Later on, I pick up briefly taste notes that make me think of guava and a Japanese brand of green cup jelly from my youth.
