Neat. Sample. Batch 28. This has been on my unicorn list. A friend sent me this sample and also then found me a bottle. So I better love this for all he did to get it to me! The nose is more subtle than I was expecting but there is a lot going on. Not a lot of obvious MGP notes either. The finishing is front and center. Rich brown sugar and cinnamon. Medley of raspberries and blueberries. Vanilla frosting. Definitely some tobacco. Nice oak and leather. Hint if almond. Oh there is some Fig Newtons in here too. That is interesting. Geez this nose is incredible. Amazing how many layers there are when at the same time it isn’t in your face or aggressive. Just lean back and take your time with it. Rich and creamy. Wow, oily too. Runs in every crevice instantly. Dark raspberries and brown sugar on the tongue. And the raspberries are really juicy. Oh those Fig Newtons make another appearance. Transitions to the almonds and the vanilla. Back to the berries in the legs. And then leaves with leather, tobacco and oak. It gets better and more intense on each sip. The flavors go for miles. My mouth is watering and even my saliva has these intense flavors to bring it all back again. These flavors are still hanging in my mouth and especially the roof of my mouth. I think my toes curled at one point of the experience. As I work my way to the bottom of the sample, this sweet oak is growing and is even more delicious. Gosh. This may be one of my favorite bottles ever. I’m overwhelmed.
