Tasting Notes

"Nose shows an herbal, earthy profile along with tangy cherry notes. Toasted oak and maple also appear. As you taste, the flavors move on to cereal grains, crushed fall leaves, and vanilla. All of which intensify with added water. The flavor mimics these notes, with the finish focusing on those herbal, earthy and bittersweet flavors. Cherry is just a hint here."
