Immediately enchanting and delightful, the nose takes the fruitiness I’ve always admired in Baker’s and tosses it into a blender along with butterscotch, baking chocolate, spearmint, and a bit of fresh oak. What winds up in the glass is no less wonderful, a mouthful of fresh cherry, more mint, brown butter, and a healthy slug of baking spice. Rounded and enveloping, the body is unctuous and exciting and, frankly, hard to put down. Notes of Mexican chocolate linger on the finish — slightly hot, but so seductive. A huge win.
