"Rough nose with charred oak verging on sawdust. A noticeable ethanol, vanilla and caramel aroma appear as well. The palate matches the nose with heavy smoke overshadowing the sweet caramel and butterscotch. Rough texture on the palate and hot on the finish. Finish flavors are dominated by the oak and smoke with a continuation of the sweet undertones."
