Tasting Notes

"The nose is a sticky sweet invitation with aromas of banana, creamy custard, and vanilla pudding. The alcohol does a nice job of amplifying the palate’s flavors of big notes of malt, vanilla, and warming wood spices. Adding a few drops of water brings out dark chocolate and tones down the rambunctious vanilla flavor. The wood dominates the finish with lasting spice and dry tannin."
