The aroma after the pour is lightly spicy and delicately brown sugar-like; air contact stirs deeper scents of molasses, dark caramel and lead/minerals. The palate entry is sugar sweet; at midpalate there’s a taste rush to marshmallow, confectioner’s sugar, oaky vanilla and light honey. Finishes gracefully, with lip-smacking tastes of bittersweet brown sugar and honey. Best Buy.
