Nose of honey, hay, with sherry-like characteristics. Also hints of propane (yeah, kinda farty... and yes, I know that true propane is scentless, but you know what I mean) and suntan lotion.  Palate is moderately sweet, with figs and other darker fruits, corn, vanilla, and honey. Spices that were quiet before become more notable in the long finish, with coriander and cayenne.  As Andy and I drank this, he remarked off-the-cuff, "I don't actively dislike it, there's just nothing there for me."  I kind of agree, although there was a bit more "there" for me.  Nice layers of spice and plummy stuff.
