"A fruity bouquet leads the nose with berries and plums, as well as spearmint, vanilla, brown sugar, and cinnamon. The palate is dry, with oak, cedar, and wood shavings, and loads of baking spices heavy on cloves and nutmeg. A moderately lengthy finish shows more richness, with brown sugar, molasses, and cinnamon alongside medicinal and minty notes. Note: Review based on barrel #1143, a Total Wine & More selection."
