Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Sweet Amber Ventures, Inc. ~ Sweet Amber Distilling Co.

The spirit has a warm, honey-amber color. Burnt caramel, oak and honey are present on the nose, with moderate hints of spice upon first taste. The flavor builds with notes of honey, cinnamon, allspice, clove and mint, with unexpected apricot lingering underneath. Expect a long and smooth finish with slightly creamy hints of butterscotch taffy, maple and honey. An apricot note that plays perfectly alongside the honey and caramel tones of the pre-finished spirit.
