Caramel and vanilla are the first to arrive at this rodeo with some dark fruit coming up behind them. Slightly grainy with notes of red licorice, honey, creme brulee and a few spurs of rye coming through it’s a pleasant nose and not something I could easily get bored with.

Caramel, cherries, and waffle cone. Now that’s a horse of a different color. There’s a very low bourbon spice riding beneath some slightly bigger notes of coca, orange, molasses and a bit of wood. Every now and then I get a note of charcoal which adds to the uniqueness of this dram.
