"The nose opens up with black licorice, along with cedar chips, menthol, and a bit of a green oak characteristic. The palate is at first balanced between rich caramel-laden sweetness and spicy rye characteristics, along with baked apple pie with a buttery crust. Towards the back though the whiskey shows its heat and becomes drier, with leather, char, and tannins, as well as closing notes of vanilla, cinnamon and spearmint. "
