Tasting Notes

"Brown sugar and baking spices lead on the nose, with vanilla and mint. The palate starts hot and bold, with cinnamon and licorice, along with candied orange peels, sour cherries, cola, and gingersnaps. A powerful, lengthy finish shows rye spice, tannic oak and leather, along with sugar-dusted fresh mint as if you're leaning into a Mint Julep."
