Tasting Notes

"Find surprising fruit undertones on the nose, along with oak, hay and light vanillins. The palate is soft and somewhat one dimensional, with dry oak, grain and a touch of spice. The finish livens things back up with overripe bananas, brown sugar and toffee. A touch of water helps redeem the palate with more of a sweet side as well."
