Very well rounded and complete. The nose delivers hickory smoke, balsamic notes and subdued, ripe-fruit aromas. The mouthfeel is impressive and pure, while red currant, plum and berry flavors cover the bases. Finishes toasty and slightly oaky, with vanilla, cream and mocha flavors. Easy to wrap yourself around; like settling into a comfortable chair.
