"The nose kicks off with licorice and a hefty dose of mint in the form of medicinal menthol. There's also vanilla and overripe apples. The palate is dry and thin, with cedar, cinnamon, and burnt toast topped with melted butter. The finish is astringent, with leather, green oak and a cardboard; though more in in a dried-out fashion as opposed to a true fault in the form of a musty off-note."
