Nose: Honey and some port wine, with cinnamon, tobacco, and nutmeg.
Palate: Bold but smooth. Maple butter and rye-like spiciness. Very good balance, as spices kick in to mellow the sweetness. Nutmeg and cinnamon, with berries, citrus rinds, caramel and marzipan.
Finish: Some oak bitterness appears now, and some trailing fruits and marzipan linger for a relatively long finish.
