"Balance is apparent on the nose with equal sweet and baking spices, but also discordant earthy/vegetal and dill. The palate is balanced with fruit introduced. Rounded mouthfeel neither too sweet or too dry. On the finish, the heat rises but it lingers into a spicy, dry and dusty leather flavor and mouthfeel."
