"The nose reveals its high proof from the start, bold and fiery, with mint, rye spice, cinnamon, and vanilla. Take a sip to find a chewy mouthfeel, with more vanilla and spice, oak, dark chocolate, and cocoa powder. A long-lasting finish starts with a punch of heat, along with menthol, cedar, all spice, cloves, and brown sugar. Drop in an ice cube to cool things down and sweeten her up a bit."
