Nose of penaut brittle and Bit-O-Honey -- strong Bit-O-Honey.  There's not a whole lot going on in the palate, but what's there is entirely inoffensive in every way and good.  Honeyed, medium-sweetness with traditional stuff like caramel, vanilla, and apple.  Finish is medium-length, with a little excess heat, and some nuts/cashews/peanuts in the tails.  That Bit-O-Honey thing really carries all the way through... and I like Bit-O-Honey a lot, so that makes this somewhat craveable for me.  I would think that any average bar-goer would really take to this -- it's very "smooth."

Nose: Lumber, like at Home Depot, saw dust.

 

Palate: It starts in sweet and then quickly picks up some of those lumber tastes from the nose. Mid palate it develops some briny notes and then some acid which lasts into the finish.
