Yummy is the descriptor that comes to mind here. A soft entry brings butterscotch and butter-pecan highlights, gliding around a deep core of cherry cola. Though forward and well-rounded, it's not simple like soda pop. In fact, it's quite satisfying, with good body and balance, just built for immediate enjoyment.
