Tasting Notes

"Cloves and baking spices lead on the nose, along with vanilla, leather, and a touch of spearmint and licorice. The palate is dry and oak-forward, with toasted rye bread, caramel, and more baking spices. A pleasantly long and spicy finish hits with a rush of bigger and richer flavors, closing with bitter dark chocolate and maple syrup."
