Tasting Notes

"The nose is all big rye-spice up front. Underneath, find gingerbread cookies, dark brown sugar, vanilla, and cloves. The palate comes on heavy and hot. Get past that to find more vanilla and brown sugar, along with a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. There's a long, hot finish, with more cream and vanilla, as well as oak and spice. Cut it with water for a softer but still spicy profile."
