Tasting Notes

"Notes of honey-dipped banana, tobacco, and some cedar lead the nose. The palate is rather light, with the honey continuing through, as some delicate citrus, pear, and banana make a brief appearance. Spice leads to the finish, which is medium-short. An easy-drinking blend, but not much else."
