"Caramel and sharp heat strike the nose initially, with strong vanilla plus distinct malt and nuttiness. Aromas expand to dry grass, toasted grains and hot earth like a summer-scorched field. The palate is corn-forward, also sharp and pleasantly oily and matches the nose with added stone fruit. The finish is malty and grainy."
