Tasting Notes

"Butterscotch and oak get the nose started, followed by grape jelly, dates, and prunes. The palate has a flash of heat that then dissipates to a rather soft feel, with peanut brittle, lavender and delicate berries. The finish is warming and moderately lengthy, with astringent oak, beeswax, sugar-coated grapes, and fruit syrup."
