Habanero and Serrano Capiscumel

Just showing off:

I brewed this capiscumel a long time ago but just finally bottled it tonight, it was only a one gallon batch. I transferred 11 gallons of bochet that a buddy and I brewed in June. That got me in a homebrew mood so I bottled this!

Tasting notes: it finished way sweeter than intended at 1.095 (rediculous I know) but it started at 1.185ish so at 13% its not poorly balanced. At first I hated the sweetness, I wanted it at more like 1.03-45 to balance the high alcohol and spiciness. It actually works pretty well, sweet right off the bat but it is 2.5 years old, so it is very smooth. At the back end the alcohol pops out and you get that nice warming spiciness. I figured at worst this would make a great marinade but I will definitely serve this, maybe even with a splash of black pepper infused vodka as a nice cocktail.

Made up a quick label last night, thinking about gifting these so I think it classes it up nicely. Also that's the Irish whiskey I used to make a little cocktail with last night, worked beautifully
