Nose: Cocoa, graham cracker, ethanol, tobacco. There’s a nice oakiness and a very strong toffee note also.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel, no real heat here. Cocoa, pepper and oak are the front runners, some clove. Overall, it’s a hair muted.

Finish: Medium length, faint clove. Nice fruitiness comes out with a good cocoa, graham cracker finish.

Overall: I enjoyed this and found the oak and spice to be well balanced with the sweet toffee and graham cracker. I wish there was a little more going on in the palate, but this was far from disappointing.

Thanks for reading!
