"The nose bursts out at you from the glass, with rich vanilla, honey, baked apples, butterscotch and peaches. On the palate, you’ll find layers of complexity and a soft, velvety mouth-feel, offering more peach and vanilla, oak, and a touch of spice. The finish goes on and on offering a bit of heat and lasting notes of a deep, rich sweetness. "
