Smells like burnt apple cider, or apples that have been baked until charred before being juiced. Golden raisins and licorice follow in the nose. Flavorwise, there's complexity here, but there's a note I don't like. Almost like it's just too charred. Too much burnt oak? Drinks more like medicinal whiskey - with a whisper of apple brandy in the back of your throat if you really look for it. The wood dominates the flavor, with a somewhat bitter unpleasant herbal quality. It's a touch hot, but it's not the heat that bothers me. My problem is with what this is missing: a bright note, or more sweetness or richness. Anything to round out oak and char.
