Score: 7
Would I buy a bottle? Yes

Thoughts: To me, this was like liquid baking spices.  Nutmeg especially hit me so hard and definitively, you can see that it was the first thing I picked up throughout tasting it.  While that held it back slightly from being one of those complicated balance of flavors that push a spirit into my higher echelon of complexity, it was still very enjoyable.
