Tasting Notes

"The nose showcases biscuit, toast, and baking spices, along with vanilla and oak. The palate is also heavy on the biscuit side, with dry oak, spearmint and menthol, cedar, and touches of black pepper in the background. A long finish is a mix between lingering vanilla sweetness and bitter, astringent oak and tart cherries."
