Nose of buttered waffles, maple syrup. Chocolate truffles and raspberry jelly. Nice! Sometimes I get whiffs of something gaseous (read: farty) but not enough to discourage me. Also some kind of fresh-cut atypical wood (maybe walnut) and a faint suggestion of smoke.
Palate is tangy, wow. Really sweet on entry, honeyed, hazelnuts. Maple syrup again. Mouthfeel like a liquer. Somewhat reminiscent of Frangelico.
Finish is medium-length with the tanginess turning to typical spice, with a tinge of a sweet cigar.
This may be too sweet for some, but I like what it's doing -- although it does it rather clumsily. Gimmicky finish suspected, but who cares [tasted blind]. I believe it was McDonald's who advertised the McGriddle as "Weird, but Good Weird."
