Big caramel candy twist with dark chocolate and toffee. Sweet brown sugar and dark raisin. Autumn leaves and allspice. Stone fruits and coffee.
Coats your palate with layers of sweetness: caramel, brown sugar, and creamy crème brûlée. Oak tannins and coffee. Apple and stone fruit.
It lingers, clean and dry, getting deeper into allspice and clove.
xA textured mouthfeel that you could cut with a knife and fork, this is lovely!
Sweet cherries with a pinch of cinnamon and almonds, followed by vanilla and brown sugar.
Cherries turn dark and vanilla becomes dark chocolate. Add a little water to release cinnamon Red Hots. Enjoyable balance of fruit-chocolate-spice.
Fruit lingers at the back of the throat while nutty oak softens. A dash of pepper flames up at the very end.
The proof accounts for some lip tingling. Otherwise, as smooth as it is complex.
