Tasting Notes

"A candy-esque sweetness with whiffs of cherry candy canes on the nose, but also fresh red berries and stroopwafels. Soft notes of vanilla, cinnamon buns and a whisper of menthol. The palate has a creamy mouthfeel and a (slightly overpowering) tannic quality. A combination of vibrant spices and soft red fruits, but also a tinge of caramel. Quite nice and intricate, although you'd have to enjoy your oak."
