Vanilla, slight caramel, leather, dark cocoa, orange and lemon zest, candied orange and citrus.


The nose carries through. Lots of vanilla and sweet notes on the front palate fading to spicy pepper and citrus on the mid palate, with slight oak and black pepper on the rear of the tongue.


Medium in length, barrel tannins and rye spice carry through. Score: 92 out of 100 points.
