Nose:  Sweet and savory, teriyaki chicken, some briny notes.
Palate:  Candy coated pine cones.
Finish:  Mostly sweet.

A bit overly sweet but some interesting flavors mixed in.

N: Toffee and wood, butter, slight white pepper and oak, light fruit, a little cedar and a little pine. After a while some orange and vanilla develop.

P: Light on the palate, initially oaky but buttery; toffee and slight caramel, maple syrup, pepper, becoming slightly sweet and vanilla. Faint orange.

F: Drying, oak, black tea, some vanilla and light cherry notes. Light pepper and spice. 
 
The finish is somewhat nremarkable but this is actually pretty decent. Enough spice to be interesting but not overbearing in any direction.
