N: Fragrant and fruity. Berries in abundance, some raspberries even evident. Grainy and smooth; corn and wheat. Light pepper notes. Some wood, a little toffee and caramel. Vanilla.

 

P: Light on the palate. Gently spicy, wood, vanilla, black cherries, creamy and rich. Sweet but far from cloying.
 
F: Warming gently and settling down; the fruits and berries again hold strong with raspberries, plums, black cherries. Grain provides a light bed for it all with vanill and maple syrup at the edges. 
 
This is an easy drinker and insanely fruity. I'd buy a bottle of this. My ideal would be turned up a little more but this is really enjoyable.
