Cherry, then apple, oak & corn grain in the Aroma. Very spicy and a touch hot for a 107 proof. Cinnamon, baking spices, a light bread note and finishes like a Fire Ball (candy). Water usually brings out more spice, in this case it brings out more bread, brown sugar and even molasses notes. This is a must add water bottle. Just 3 or 4 drops brings this more into focus. I get a lingering tobacco & molasses flavor. Moments of chocolate and coffee as I work through the glass. This seems to be one that you have to let wash over you. Try as I might, I can't get this to a full 4.0.
