Nose: Really floral, lots of caramel, clove and pepper.

Taste: There’s a lot of heat here but it is paired with a very rich mouthfeel. Sweet caramel, honey and maple. Lots of pepper and oak.

Finish: Long, a good bit of heat, but it’s peppery and dry.

Overall: This isn’t my favorite pick that I’ve had, but it’s not bad. It’s just a bit dry and peppery for my taste.
