Wow....Wow! Clean nose of sweet fruity gummy sherry.  Strawberries, peaches, vanilla, black tea and herbal notes.  Again a great nose.  On the palate you still get the sweet fruits a bite of smoke, licorice and mint with a medium citrus peel finish. The flavors on the palate just didn't pop like the smells on the nose.

 

This could have been something great.  I was ready to buy a 6 pack after nosing this, but the palate made me think twice.

n: Awesome!  Cherry and strawberry gummy bears.  Candy.

 

p:  Sand and grain.  Far less sweet than the nose.  Mildly bitter.  Dried plum.  Disappointing after the nose.

 

B+ thanks to the nose.
