Nose has moderate cherry/berry scents, dijon mustard, tinge of smoke, chocolate. Palate -- ooh -- chocolate, toffee, and that mustard/spice/smoke thing. Medium-sweetness. Quite rich without being too much of anything. There's also something in the background that tastes like I'm chewing on carnations. Hey, I really like this! Finish is long, where the smoke emerges more and sticks around longest, with a little black pepper. Gets dryer in a way that's a nice contrast to the palate. Reveals different characteristics on every few sips. B+/A-
N: Candy corn, brown sugar, lightly floral, and some herbal notes on the exhale (after drinking). P: Buttery, fruity, and sweet with a gingery peat registering later with some salty tartness. F: This is where the peat really comes out, but it's still delicate (and tasty). Finishes dry and refreshing, I dig this a lot.
Warm Peanut brittle nuttiness with tart citrus and a fair bit of salt. Nuttiness is present on the palate with toasted maltiness, toffee, pears and some sherry notes. Finish is a bit briney and lasts a while.
