"The nose is unsurprisingly big on rye, with rye bread, spearmint, spice, and unbaked dough. The palate continues along that minty track but introduces baking spices, heavy on the cinnamon side in particular, along with cedar wood, brown sugar, biscuit, and background vanilla. A smooth, moderately lengthy finish starts big then mellows, offering more rye spice and menthol, leaving the mouth tingling before final notes of chocolate linger."
