The Tasting Panel
"The nose exhibits a surge of caramel, tobacco, and sweet peach before the palate widens, releasing apricot nectar and exotic spice. A taste of char is tempered by vanilla on the pleasant finish."
"The bouquet has a dry, grainy aroma which is accented by peppery/spicy scents. The palate entry is surprisingly sweet and corny, considering how dry the aroma is; the midpalate point is deep, corny sweet, sap-like and a bit syrupy. Ends up well and balanced, with a backnote of dried red fruit (raisins, prunes)."
