"The aroma is fairly aromatic with dark malt and vanilla. Smoke is found as well, but it's a charred barrel quality and not peat reek. Smooth on your palate, there is dark caramel and more malt to be found. Somewhat chewy, the finish has a woody aspect and the sugar and spice are backup singers to the headliner that is dried fruit."
"Earthy nose, driven by autumn leaves and toasted grains . In the mouth it is light with red apple and stone fruit notes, spicy and warm mid-palate. The finish is long and leaves a pleasant pear bitters sensation."
