Nose:  Pine, herbal notes.
Palate:  Sweet up front with rye spice coming in mid-palate and out to the finish.
Finish:  Nose full of rye.

Nice and drinkable.

N: Stronger prickle with some pepper. Pronounced sweetness on the nose - primarily vanilla with some toffee on the back. There's some butterscotch and general alcohol notes. Some wood to it but not overbearing. 

P: Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Pepper on the palate, plum and black cherry, slowly warming, sweet taste. Slightly bready at moments. 

F: Warming for a moment, with black cherries and a slightly medicinal note. Somewhat dry, somewhat oaky. 
 
This one is a bit sharper and thinner than #29 but still enjoyable. Less easy to pull the notes out of than 29 but the flavors are more intense (just not there in abundance). Middle of the road but I'd buy it.
