It has a thick dark honey, thick maple syrup, Persian tea, hammered or Ricardo Montalban bronze. 
Fumes, mellow tones of caramel, toffee, and butterscotch.
Oil, cream and butter dominate at first and open the door to sweet citrus, pepper, and molasis.
A medium-long finish dominated with sweet creamy flavors, butter, and oak, nuts, toffe, and some salt.
A beautifully crafted sweet, smooth dram with a good level of complexity.  Can be improved with a tiny bit of added water.
