Intense golden-brown sugar and drizzles of maple syrup. A unique floral rose water. Macadamia nuts and damp tea leaves.
Caramel, milk chocolate and cassis. Nice touch of oak that follows oriental spices.
Firm tannins that eventually break into almond and honey. Soft spice caresses the tongue as the oak returns.
Gutsy tannins and full-bodied, layers of flavors that speak one at a time.
Peach cobbler. Dark brown sugar and peaches with some mace and allspice. Yeasty biscuit.
Crème brûlée with a touch of fruit added to the custard. Baking spices provide some accents, as well as some modest oak tannins.
The vanilla dries into the oak tannins from the palate, which continue to make themselves known for a while, most notably on the lips.
Very nice on its own, but would also be an excellent cocktail base. An Old Fashioned would be superior.
