"On the nose, you will find chocolate, raisins, turpentine, oak and the scent you get when you open up your spice drawer. The palate has a good amount of burn, toffee sweetness, and a rubber aftertaste. The aroma of cleaning products comes to mind. The finish is moderate with more turpentine and burnt sugars coming through. "
