"The nose showcases an herbal and menthol profile, with Luxardo cherries, caramel, dark chocolate, doughy bread, and cinnamon rolls. The palate begins hot then flashes to rich vanilla, before shifting to a drier side, with mulled wine and a fruity-medicinal kick à la flavored cough syrup. More of that doughiness on the finish, with baking spices, cocoa powder, berries, and tart cherries. "
