Nose: Rich, loaded with caramel. Toffee, buttered popcorn. Honey, lemon meringue. Salt, pepper, soapstone, light sawdust note. Super rich, faint brine.

Taste: Rich honey, thick mouth feel. Light ethanol. Bread-y, lots of pepper, brine and rich plum. Apple, pears, intense ash and passion fruit.

Finish: Long, rich and filled with caramel, honey, buttered popcorn. Nice woody ash complements and adds to the complexity.
