"Vanilla and crème brûlée lead on the nose, with brown sugar, graham crackers, and a medicinal kick in the background. The palate opens big, with baking spices and caramel upfront, followed by dark chocolate, molasses, char, and burnt toast. The finish is rich and sweet, with oak, cacao nibs, peanuts, cinnamon, and long-lasting, voluminous vanilla. "
