Nose: Wonderfully aromatic nose with notes of cocoa and Maraschino cherry liqueur. Notes of oak, spices, hot pancakes with syrup, wood, espresso coffee and mixed conserves.
Palate: Excellent body and delivery with notes of massive, spicy oak. A barrage of cocoa and molasses hits, with explosions of pepper and char.
Finish: Thick and long, develops an intense oak grip.
