Oaky scent and mellow oaky taste. medium finish of molasses.
Slightly hot, rustic nose. Color shows some age. Smoother in the mouth. Slightly tart finish.
Blew my fucking mind. Hay/tobacco/leather on cherry/plum/raisin with a really nice nose, just the right acid, just the right body, which is to say pretty strong.
delicious and not too expensive.
