"Brown sugar and caramel lead on a big, booming nose, alongside mint. That continues through to the palate which offers a heavy dose of menthol, as well as rich dark chocolate syrup, and a surprising note of peaches and cream. The finish shifts gears to spicy, astringent oak, as well as vanilla Tootsie Rolls, for a lengthy ride that leaves the lips tingling."
