"The nose is rich and sweet, with vanilla, pears, baked apples, and rye spice. The palate offers a full assortment of baking spices—nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon—along with brown sugar, more rich vanilla sweetness, and char. The finish is lengthy and starts hot, offering more rye notes, molasses, black pepper, astringent oak, and cedar wood."
