Nose: Vanilla, caramel, some clove, cinnamon, lots more vanilla

Taste: VERY Sweet. Some prickly heat. Big vanilla, creamy caramel. Pepper, gingerbread. Very bourbon-y but much much sweeter. Good deal of cocoa. Hot, though.

Finish: Medium, nice and complex. There’s heat but it’s more in line here. Still really sweet.

Overall: Alright, things are getting better still. I’m going to give this a Rank 6. It’s a tad on the cloying sweet side but it’s got some really nice intense notes. I enjoyed this.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
