Nose: Rich honey, doughnuts, butter cream. Faint salinity, caramel and oak. Just unbelievably rich. Faint smoke, faint floral fruits, all sweet cream.

Taste: Thick, oily, rich. No heat. Butter cream, lemon zest, faint lactic bbq. Nice salinity and pepper. Super rich and loaded with dessert notes.

Finish: Increasingly smoky with time, nice floral fruits. Pepper, salt, caramel. Big rich vanilla exit.

Overall: Wow. This is really incredible. The richness is off the charts, and I could sit and drink this all day. The butter cream and the blend of salt, pepper and faint floral fruits made it delightful.

Thanks for reading!
