Flavors of vanilla, caramel, unsweetened chocolate, tobacco leaves, and butterscotch with strong oak notes, and a dry finish.
The opening whiffs detect the buttery, resiny and lightly baked presence of oak barrels; following further air contact, more vegetal aromas appear, including green pepper, green olive, candle wax and garden flowers. The palate entry accentuates the oak-barrel sweetness while the midpalate adds succulent notes of cream, caramel and light honey. Concludes sweet, silky in texture, and classy.
