Nose / Heavy notes of oak and toasted wood char present upfront, followed by subtle unfolding of a nutty base and finite floral sweetness. Taste / A pronounced rye spiciness flows into a detailed offering of warm molasses, leather and black pepper. Toasted grains, corn and dark fruit are present and momentarily rest on the palate. Finish / The finish is long and well balanced. Traditional warming sensations capture a blend of lively oak notes and a peat-like earthiness. Toffee and rye linger as the flavors fade away.
