"Cloves lead off on a spicy nose, along with orange peel, vanilla pudding, and Maraschino cherries. The palate showcases leather and tannic oak, along with cedar chips, incense, mint, and burnt toast. The finish follows along a similar track, with coffee grounds, menthol, and chocolate-covered salted pretzels. "
