Nose: The nose opens with sweet red fruit dusted in white pepper, cacao, cinnamon, and earthy baking spices before deeper notes of charred oak and dark caramel emerge. The deeper you nose the more intense the fruit, caramel, and spice notes become whilst ethanol dances around the edges.
Palate: The palate opens thick and viscous with soft red fruits, dark caramels, dry baking spices and a kick of peppery charred oak tannins. Once the spice fades notes of bitter dark chocolate emerge alongside faintly herbaceous charred oak, and fire-roasted almonds.
Finish: The finish opens with lingering tannic spice at first, however, as this clears red fruit, sweet dark caramel, and earthy baking spices emerge before leading straight into a long aftertaste of near-burnt caramel, faintly herbaceous charred oak, dark chocolate, and a warm Kentucky Hug.
