The bouquet is loaded with heady aromas of vanilla cream, black fruit, and cedar spice. The old vine fruit shines through with flavors of blueberry liqueur, blackberry, black cherry and peppery spice. The PappyVan Winkle barrels take it to the next level, adding wood smoke, brown sugar, and sweet spice that are lovely compliments to the pure dark fruit. This is a thrill ride now and will continue to offer pleasure for another 3-4 years.
