An intense vanilla-caramel nose also bears a rich backdrop of old leather. The body is huge and almost chewy, and the palate offers toffee notes, a touch of butterscotch and, just like the nose, notes of rich leather with a hint of tobacco thrown in for good measure. The finish is very long and smooth.
90 points - Wine Enthusiast
Nose - Pronounced oak softened by fruity rye and gentle vanilla. A little toffee and honey. Palate - Big, big lift off with a powering oaky-rye surge and an immediate arrival of spice. Toasty towards the middle with the corn arriving late on. Finish - Long, cocoa and oak finale; burnt toast with a spread of honey. Comments - More oak and age than normal. Being a small batch it does vary but is always delicious.
