Not overly smokey, I had it with ice and lemon and it was surprisingly satisfying. Like the intensity and mouth-feel, most non alcoholic spirits are quite watery. Best of what I’ve tried. Curious about their new Red too.
I cannot really descibe this drink other than to say it is quite pleasant and usual. I liken it maybe a little like absinthe, but more slightly more bitter. Don't be afraid of this one, it is a winner that just doesn't have anything to compare to.
On the nose it smells a bit of malt, fig and raisin. To taste the raisin comes through more with a fig-like sweetness, a hint of bitter and a ginger-like spiciness even though it doesn't really taste of ginger to me. On ice I feel like the raisin steps out a bit more with a bit more tartness, the bitterness starts to stand out a tad more on ice as well. It's an interesting and decently complex flavor profile. In some ways it reminds me of a dessert sherry. Sweeter and darker in flavor. I can see drinking this as an after dinner digestif. Writing this in late December it also seems to be reminiscent of this time of year. Almost like a spiced cider made with dark fruits and ginger ale.
