"Find surprising notes of bananas - resembling those chewable "banana runts" candies you may have had as a kid -and vanilla custard dominant on the nose. Also rye spice and light hints of tropical fruit. The palate offers a dry, oaky profile, with more rye along with brown sugar and a cast of baking spices- cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. A smooth finish brings back the sweeter notes of banana and vanilla, along with caramel, oak, rye and a bit of black pepper."
