TASTING NOTES​

NOSE: Balsa wood, dehydrated apple rings, and a freshly opened pack of unfiltered cigarettes but with rich sweetness in the form of chocolate covered Shredded Wheat and hints of Cherry Lips and Strawberry Starburst.

PALATE: Wonderful mouth coating texture with abundant notes: walnut skins, chocolate dipped cherries dusted in cocoa powder, fresh wood shavings, vibrant rye spice, Biscoff cookies, and Whoppers – quite earthy and a touch herbaceous.

FINISH: Moderate to long with lingering rye spice, more wood shavings, drying cocoa, black licorice and then, on the very end, a bright citrus flourish.

PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY
