Clear as rainwater. Opening whiffs detect subtle traces of charcoal and roasted grain; aeration brings out sweeter aromas of sweet grain mash and pipe tobacco. Entry is smoky, charred, almost woody; the midpalate point is oily, moderately viscous, semisweet, and robust in the mouth. Ends on an oily, bacon-like note that's delicious and full-bodied. A genuine no-nonsense, well-made American pot still vodka that deserves every accolade.
