This smells like sawdust, vanilla extract, licorice and roasted fruit. Rich though soft in the mouth at first, this certainly packs in body and dry extract, though it comes off as blocky and dense. The fruit is a bit on the pruny side and just seems really saturated. The finish is dry and tough, with matte saturation of flavor on the tongue. More a textural event than a tasting event, this reminds me of Play-doh. 85pts
