N: Dry, astringent and spicy with some considerable wood. Sharp, with pepper cinnamon and dry spices. A bit of toffee below it all

 

P: Somewhat creamy but kind of thin. Grains and cereal, light fruits - cherry and plum - with some orange. Cinnamon. Some dry oak. A hint of maple syrup.
 
F: Grainy and cereal-y, pepper, orange, distant molasses, medium length. Pepper, spice, lightly dry.
 
It's fairly good. The nose is dry, spirity, and could use something additional but it's OK. The grain notes are nice. It's just not something I'd pull off the shelf.
