The dry cake smelled, to me, precisely of rich, unscented pipe tobacco—Scottish shag, or an English blend with Turkish leaf. Once brewed, the liquor is a perfect amber-honey tone, and the aroma has the sharpness of honey accompanied by a vaguely floral quality. The honey note follows into the taste of the liquor—musky, sweet, rich honey. There are other notes—citrus? nutmeg? clove? There is a definite sense of spice, though not of a peppery spice. It reminds of fall, of the contrast of cold, crisp air, and warm indoor nourishment. The aftertaste, too, is honey—aromatic, warm, ever so slightly sharp in its sweetness.
