An unusual nose of cider apple, cinnamon and berry fruit. Hints of herbs, smoky oak, violets, stem ginger and an almost wheaty note. The coffee/ caramel oak begins to dominate.
Milk chocolate coated toffee, herbal spice and some dark rye-like notes. The cider apple is noticeable along with a touch of roasted almonds, coffee. Very intense and unusual with building gritty tannins.
Long and very herbal with that rye-like note lingering and a chocolaty after-taste.
Wine cask (Merlot) finished Colorado Whiskey. Now that is unusual!
