"The nose invites you in with caramel-stuffed chocolates, vanilla extract and sour cherries. The palate is rich and luscious, a slow-moving, sticky river of caramel, leading to peanut shells and coffee grounds. A sumptuous and lipsmacking, lengthy finish mixes indulgent milk chocolate with baking spices and oak, and is worth simply closing your eyes and savoring."
