Nose: Super prominent honey, caramel, toffee – everything sweet and pleasant. Like a really bold Werthers with a faint melon note.

Taste: Thick, rich. Medium heat. Sweet honey, confectioners sugar, caramel and toffee. Minute floral notes with some white pepper and faint fruitiness. Nice oak presence.

Finish: Long, no heat. Nice blend of pepper, oak, caramel and general sweetness. Really something.

Overall: Another home run 4R pick. The sweets and oak balance well and deliver another tried and true OESK combination for the win.
