"On the nose fine dried peaches, apricots, Heath bar, and peat. The palate shows vanilla, more peat, cinnamon, nutmeg, and leather. The dry finish has smoked fruits shine through. Interesting, but definitely an acquired taste. This is perfect for someone who is over all the old standbys on the shelf and want a new added layer to the regular, vanilla, fruit and oak tasting notes."
