Tasting Notes

"The nose is rich, offering vanilla taffy, cherries and rye spice. Chocolate and candied oranges intermingle together on the palate after a soft entry. Towards the back, the palate becomes drying and tannic with cedar chips, leather and Red Hots candy, as well as cloves and ginger. A moderately lengthy finish offers vanilla, spearmint and spice. "
