Candy corn nose, with varnish, oak, hint of mint? The palate, ooh, it's nice and rich, with the flavors you'd expect from the nose. Kind of a "burnt" flavor... prunes and stewed fruits, overcooked banana bread. Buttery. The wood here does come too much after time -- it's overoaked -- but it's not bad stuff. Were this available today I'd happily drink your bottle.
