"The nose initially presents as hot alcohol but slowly opens to milk chocolate, vanilla, burnt cream, and ripe bananas. The palate is cloying sweet with peppermint, vanilla, and dry wood but the flavors are overshadowed by a rough, bitter and medicinal texture. The finish is sweet with caramel apple notes but stays hot."
