"Brown sugar and barrel char open up a rich nose, with vanilla pudding, oak, and traces of peanut butter. The palate switches from tannic oak and cedar box to rich vanilla sweetness, along with charcoal, and the crispy burnt corners of brownies. A short, smooth finish hits on bitter coffee grounds, cloves, cinnamon, and astringent oak."
