Into the secondary it goes. Great color and taste so far. The sweet paprika isn't near as overpowering as I thought it might have been. The fresh papaya in there should do wonders for it.

The aroma is phenomenal, smells like fresh papaya . Not quite the flavor on it that I was hoping for. I guess papaya just isn't a fruit that comes through as much. Probably going to double up the amount of papaya next time. And the paprika added pleasant and subtle note to the finish. Be sure if you are going to use it to use the sweet paprika as the smoked paprika might not be as pleasant and subtle.
