"This nose will wake you up like replacing your regular coffee with Folger’s Crystals. It’s floral, grassy and spicey like a field of wild spring flowers. There are some young grain spirit notes but they are chaperoned by brilliant oak. Flavors flood the mouth with a freshly ground peppercorn blend, ripe fruit, butterscotch and hints of a rural earthiness that rises into an outstanding dry finish."
