Tasting Notes

"Nose is intensely aromatic and hot with smoke, vanilla and spices. On the palate the heat is still noticeable, but not unpleasant. The smoke and oak balance against sweet caramel and vanilla. After a few sips, fruit emerges, especially green apple, pear and raisins. The finish is short and warm and adds dark chocolate."
