Aged oak barrel chips. Ripe, slightly bruised dark tree fruit and berries. Cinnamon, maple, vanilla bean and citrus zest. A whisper of white pepper. Pungent alkaline minerals. Flavor: Rich silky texture, with pepper and barrel spices heating up the entrada. Creamy vanilla & maple present as in the nose - but the fruit is taking a back seat on the palate. Citrus notes bloom halfway through.
