Tasting Notes

"Be prepared for a ton of spice on this one! Chocolate covered caramels mixed with cinnamon are the first aromas out of the glass, followed by a slightly herbal or medicinal note. The palate, on the other hand exhibits a spiced caramel (think chilies instead of cinnamon). Vanilla and toffee dominate after the initial hit of caramel spice, with a pleasant burn down the throat. Always a treat to have. "
