Closed and heavy on the nose, with baked-apple flavors and caramel. Weighs in as full-bodied, with toffee and bitter pith notes on the finish. Aims fairly high and delivers up to an extent: there's size and substance but also some overripeness, corn and pith. Not perfect, but not bad. Imported by Billington Imports.
