Mahogany color. The nose is sweet and dominated by maraschino cherry syrup, along with a little ground walnut, brown sugar, and honey. Rich, full-bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel. The palate is not as one-dimensional as the nose, with notes of butterscotch, bittersweet chocolate, walnuts, burnt cinnamon stick, ground nutmeg, leather and a lot of sweet oak. The finish is long, hot and dry, with more butterscotch, burnt cinnamon stick, faint cherries and oak. Overall, a fine expression. The nose is deceptively sweet, while the liquid itself drinks hotter than the proof and packs a real punch.
