N: Initially dusty. Grain on the nose with some oak and pepper as well. A solvent note on the nose as well. Some corn, some faint vegetal notes. Quite sharp. Very dry.

 

P: Moderately thick in the mouth. Light cinnamon, pepper, wood, toffee, caramel, vanilla. Some fruits hanging out in the background. Sweet.

 

F: Vanilla, black cherries and a hint of plum, appls, some light oak. drying. Kind of a weighty finish. Grains hang out the longest at the end.

 

The nose really has nothing to do with the palate. Quite strange. Interesting but not great palate, somewhat muted; decent enough finish.
