Tasting Notes

"Vanilla toffee and glazed donuts lead on the nose, with a confectioner's mix of cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg. Tannic oak and cedar chips offer an astringent start to the palate, which then opens up with a hefty dose of baking spices, burnt caramel, baked apples, candied ginger, and almonds. More vanilla, now laced with spearmint and black pepper, shows on a long finish that can wash the troubles of the world away. "
