Peggy Noe Stevens

Nose: Floral notes abound and turn brilliantly into sweet caramel and vanilla. Some smoked marshmallow and golden raisin. Earthy notes of tobacco.

Palate: Great mouthfeel with a nice caramel and oak. Almost cassis-like with wood sugar and streaks of smoke.

Finish: Rests gently on the tongue and hangs with the sweet caramel and smoke. 

Comments: I would never mix this, with the floral notes it is just nice on the rocks, or neat.



Susan Reigler

Nose: Will entice wine aficionados with red currants, milk chocolate, and sweet oak tannins. Vanilla with cinnamon-dusted pie crust.

Palate: Chocolate has become caramel-coated and studded with dark fruit. Cinnamon stick.

Finish: Glides along the tongue and settles into the back of the throat. Like a tune you can’t get out of your head, but you wouldn’t want to.

Comments: Lots of flavor layers here which play off one another more with the addition of a little water.
