p: Honey wheat bread from a sandwich shop. Perhaps a hint of grape jolly rancher. Not too complex but the palate and finish are fairly long and steady. It is somewhat like a Japanese whisky in its rather steady and crisp delivery.
A step up from some of the recent special releases.
Smells like an olde time candy shop which, coincidentally, is what they were going for. Vanilla, butterscotch, malt, candy dots on wax paper, tropical and orchard fruit, citrus peels and dried fruit with lots of other light sweet notes floating about.
A tad bit maltier than the nose, but it’s still dominated by that same candy shop essence. I’s filled with both light and dark sweet notes accompanied by fruit, chocolate and lemon zest with a touch of baking spice.
Medium fade of fruit, powdered sugar and a buttery sweetness.
n: sweet peppermint, juicy red fruit, mint, and vanilla taffy. Pulled saltwater taffy, orange marmalade, and dried golden fruits.
t: sweet and light; lotsa golden honey and simple syrup sweetness dominate the profile. White chocolate covered apricots, cupcake sugar sprinkles, flower petals. Hard candy sweet mints grandma had in the fancy crystal bowl. Not very dense and heavy - on the light sweet side. Finish is white powdered sugar frosting - just too sweet and one-note to excite me.
