An expressive nose starts things off. Toasted oak, vanilla, caramel, and fresh baked Bundt cake are present. These scents come across as rich and creamy with a very pleasing delivery. In addition to the flavors, a slight amount of ethanol is also present. While it’s not enough to put a damper on the nose, it is enough to hold it back from being truly fantastic. Even with the ethanol, the rich scents play great together and make for a really excellent way to start things off.
