Great nose, sweet and sugary, with varnish, fresh vanilla bean, and lots of dried mango.

 

Palate is great and unexpected, a complex spice cabinet with musty earth. Tons of dried fruits which build into the finish, with cedar joining, finally showing that fresh vanilla again.

 

A whopper with complexity and specialness.

Sweet malt with yellow peaches/ apples, incense and light sherry notes. You can also smell the wood on this but it's more like fresh cut wood chips. Actually quite nice, reminds me of a construction site. The more and more I smell this I realize this is very complex. Wow the palate is a whopper. Loads of flavors here, ranging from nuttiness, fruity to herbal stuff. Damn! This is good. Finish is smoky yet slightly sweet.

 

This is great stuff. Definitely one you can take your time with and find something new each time you come back for a sip.  Thanks Tim!

N: Fresh wood, funky graham cracker barley notes.

P: Sat upright when the flavor hit me, very unusual.   Plum sherry with lots of tea and plant notes, creamy mouth feel.

F: Slightly hot with light berry notes.
