"Mint and rye spice both jump out on the nose, with cedar wood, pine needles, menthol, and vanilla. Baking spices take center stage on the palate, along with canned pumpkin, burnt toast, spearmint, coconut, green oak, and vanilla Tootsie Rolls. A moderate length finish shows astringent oak, medicinal-minty notes and plenty more spicy rye. "
