Tasting Notes

"Pecans and vanilla lead on the nose, with peanut butter fudge, overripe mushy apples, and chocolate mousse pie topped with whipped cream. The palate offers brown sugar, whole wheat sandwich rolls, and a minty-cinnamon stick mix that suggests Red Hots. The finish is more astringent, with pistachio shells, bitter baking chocolate, barrel char, cedar wood, and menthol."
