“These hands made of splinters, keep knocking back the whiskey sours…”
About: Cold pressed Florida lemon, a full-bodied whiskey accord with nuances of coconut, apple, caramel, oak, pineapple and clove. Boozy enough to be recognizable, but you won’t smell like you’ve been day drinking. Benzoin, Western red cedar (a dry, nutmeg-like wood), and frankincense round out the base into a gourmand-leaning incense.
Inspired by the body of work by the band Murder by Death. Don’t let their name fool you like they did me. In the early 00s, I had the chance to see them play, but had never heard them before. Judging the band by their name, I thought they’d probably be run-of-the-mill metal/hardcore. I was absolutely, 110% blown away by their unique and flawlessly cohesive mix of Americana, post-hardcore and ghost stories about love, loss, falls from grace and redemption. They immediately became one of my favorite bands.
Note: Due to several natural ingredients, this may be slightly cloudy.
