Aggregate Score TBD
A nice dark copper, bronze, milk chocolate, or caramel color.  Dark amber honey.
The complex nose contains hints of chocolate, fruit, musk, cinnamon, rubber cement, salt, pepper, and smoke.
The flavor hits with an stringent or peppery bite but continues to put out and provide a wealth of nuance that includes cereal, cream, salt, peat, cinnamon, smoke, grilled sausage, and licorice.
The choreographed finish is long and starts sweet and ends up at salt, pepper, and bitter candy.
A powerful yet elusive dram.  It rocks hard with peat, smoke, salt and pepper but has a sweet fruity complexity that's difficult to pin down.
