"A light but assertive bouquet of browned butter, maple syrup, saw dust, and cinnamon candy. The first sip of this is lovely. The proof reveals itself upon more sips and amplifies the flavors of rich butter, sweet caramel, and lively spices. A dry finish of wood tannins and leather. Add some water to sprinkle some salt on those butter flavors."
