The dry leaves smell like cinnamon and I can’t really smell the leaves. The leaves are black and brown in color and there are some other components mixed in.
The wet leaves smell like spiced wood. They look strong enough for another couple of infusions.
The liquor is pretty to look at and smells like cinnamon. It tastes like a watered down version of a hot tamale cinnamon candy. It wasn’t astringent or dry.
Overall, I wasn’t really a fan. The taste wasn’t appealing to me, but I can see how some people might like it. I would rather it were a bit stronger, but I’m not sure I would have liked the taste if it were.
