Dry, but not overly so.Aged wood, tobacco, cigar box, leather, vanilla, spice, and a hint of char make for a fairly complex sip.Everything is balanced and the individual flavors are fairly subtle here with wood elements being the most dominant although not overbearing.
Old wood, cigar box, caramel, and vanilla show through.
The finish starts off with a little more alcohol burn than would be expected for the proof, and then youthful notes of caramel and vanilla take over, but only briefly.Aged wood, tobacco, and cigar box pull through and then linger for some time.As a whole the finish transitions quickly from spicy-sweet into woody and bitter.
