Nose: The nose opens complex and faintly sweet with strawberries before robust maple syrup, dried stone fruit, and bitter charred oak notes emerge alongside a touch of cinnamon, dried cacao, and a touch of black pepper rye. The longer you nose it the more bitter charred oak notes like cacao and cloves emerges alongside a touch of ethanol.
Palate: The palate is semi-viscous, opening with deep brown sugar caramel, before oak-driven notes of earthy baking spices, and dark chocolate emerge. These are followed by a wave of peppery rye spice which fades to notes of maple syrup, faint dried stone fruit, cinnamon, tannic oak, barrel spices, and a touch of char bitterness.
Finish: The finish opens with a second burst of warm spice which warms the throat before fading towards notes of maple syrup, dried fruit, barrel spices, and a fruity faintly tannic char aftertaste.
