    Lovely experience, but totally different from what you’d expect from Heaven Hill.
    • Nose
      Well, the nose is quite atypical. Do not expect a sweet bomb. This is mostly fresh oak. Wood shavings with a mild sweet edge is the only way to describe it. Hardly any fruit, but that does not make it any less interesting. Au contraire. After a few moment, something quasi tropical shines through. Peach from a can! A pinch of cinnamon in the back, along with some cloves. A mix of icing and brown sugar finally turn this nose somewhat sweeter.
    • Taste
      Soft on the palate, but the peach has a hard timing competing with the feisty spiciness. Some brown bread shines through, while the cloves evolve toward chili powder. Powerful!
    • Finish
      The spices fade gently in the medium long finish, the peach returns for a stint, but it’s vanilla that has the final word.
