Early scents of fruitiness is soon displaced by aged oaky notes and red cedar. Right after the first swirl, caramel custard, butterscotch, and hard candy take over before the fruit returns. Strong suggestions of dry tobacco leaves followed by milder suggestions of dry grain.
Sweet and silky taste, but with lots of bitter citric zest, fresh-cut wood, spicy white pepper and hints of tingly ginger ale. All this balances magically against an underlying citric bitter- ness. A weighty body and creamy slightly slippery mouthfeel merge with toffee notes and burnt sugar. Fresh fruit and inklings of rye spices and Christmas pudding round it out.
Medium long finish, hot and peppery, some sweetness.
