"Right off the bat you get big oak, pencil shavings, tobacco, resin and sawdust. Woody Woodpecker would kill for this much wood so keep your eyes peeled for that feathered fowl. The nose develops into orchard fruits such as cherries. Vanilla, milk chocolate, honey, dried fruits and loads of pepper swirl in the mouth. Dry rye grass spices up the finish where these spices take forever to sizzle away."
