Second verse same as the first. The dark fruit and sherry notes come lolling out of the glass and are followed by the same caramel, vanilla, baking spices and malt. However, this time they are accompanied by a very pleasant nuttiness that is more pervasive than the wood notes that still lie beneath it all.
BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
Decent balance with sweet hanging a bit heavy. Full body and a thick, almost oily, feel create an enjoyable drinking experience.
Caramel gets a bit of a lift here with the dark fruit and vanilla coming up behind it. Some citrus notes join the party and a spiced wood rounds out the party on a nice long finish.
