Rich malt palate in the aroma, like a smoked cup of spiced chocolate; the smoke adds layers to toast, caramel, hints of fig and raisin, cardamom, dried cherry. Caramel shifts to toffee on the tongue, adding some roast and plum to the mix. Rich without being overly heavy or chewy. Smooth and seductive smoke, suggesting aromatic pipe tobacco. Definitely something for the fireplace on a cold evening.
