Nose: Apples! Through and through. Bright zesty caramel. The smoke of the fire in front of me is getting in the way of pulling more smells out of this at the moment. Some cinnamon-like sandalwood incense smells showing up how. Dry, light vanilla more like a paper or cloth smell. Very mellow and pleasant when not trying to dig too deep.


Palate: Pear forward. Some citrus zest. Younger oak probably around 3-4 years? After taste is something like a dry paprika spice. Cloves and orange peel zest. A hint of rye grain is the only flash of youth that presents slightly metallic. The predominant mood of this pour is a spicy caramel linger. It's a nice warming sensation on this cool, rainy New England day outdoors.
