Tasting Notes

"There's a waxy quality on the nose with some orange peel, walnuts, and caramel. The palate is slightly sweet with some wood spices and a bit of vanilla. The finish is warming, slightly bitter, and has a bit of a smoky wood quality. The length on the finish could be longer and more complex."
