Notes: Fruity at first: apple pie, cherry cordial, a touch of orange peel. Quickly turns to brown sugar and maple on the nose. Plenty of honey, toffee, cracked pepper, vanilla bean. Rich on the palate, viscous mouthfeel, syrupy texture and packed with flavor. A touch of ethanol, cherry, cocoa, maple candies, tobacco and big, creamy, vanilla notes. Long finish, light char, some brown sugar and cherry cordial and sweet tea on the finish.
