Crusty cinnamon brioche with a vanilla drizzle and dark cherry with oak. Savory notes of char and bacon. Soft clove and coconut.
Caramel and nougat. Sweet toffee and dark chocolate. The cherry note comes alive along with mandarin orange. Herbal mint and black pepper.
Decadent finish that elevates the caramel and plays on with heat from the spice.
Robust; truly a stand-up whiskey with bags of flavor intensity.
Waves of caramel waft from the glass with some dark cherry preserve and notes of fine pipe tobacco. A little new leather, too.
The fruit and caramel vie on a full palate which includes cherries, herbal spice, and old book leather.
Sweeter elements yield to dry tannins rather quickly. Sensation of pepper and oak at the end.
Adding water amplifies the fruit and caramel in a big way. Use an ice cube to let the flavors unfold.
