General description

Disappointingly spicy, lots of underlining flavors but they're really hard to detect with all the oak spice. Good, just a little disappointing.

Nose

Sweet, oak, vanilla, smells slightly of Tawny Port. Exciting smell.

Palate

Oak spice for days, some Tawny port and dark fruit, slight vanilla, marzipan, and walnut.

Finish

Almost Macallan like in finish, old and dignified but less complex, sometimes grape soda.
