Nose: Light sweetness and vanilla, some peanut which is much stronger here than in the Booker’s I recently reviewed. Some earthy notes followed by a little maple.

Taste: Some woody sweetness, some vanilla and spice and then some funky leather/oak notes. I like it a lot.

Finish: It’s a little short and a little one trick pony but some peanuts funk, sugar and a little wood mingle away.

Overall: Not bad. There are a lot of enjoyable notes here. New vintages are being released all the time, so it will be interesting to compare as more pop up.

Thanks for reading!
