"The nose starts with vanilla currants, small sugars of stone fruits, and malts. Glacé cherries (candied cherries) and cloves then follow up on the back end, with a slight harshness creeping in on the end of the nose; dried fruits follow soon after. The palate is even richer than the nose lets on, with lovely plum fruits, berries, cherries, and spice mingling with a sweet river of vanilla malts and wood. The finish offers more of the same. "
