"Milk chocolate, prunes, trail mix with dried fruits, and chocolate syrup delivered on the nose. The palate is soft at first, before showcasing fruitcake, dried apricots, campfire smores, peat, wet soil, and a bit of a grassy-floral streak like a dewy meadow. A moderately lengthy, warming finish offers comfort in the form of a Hershey's candy bar with almonds alongside peat."
