Appearance: Medium to deep reddish brown.
Nose: Rich wine, raisins, corn sugar, candy apple, plums.
Palate: Wine, grapes, raisins, corn sugar, very fruity.
Finish: Corn, wine, raisin, oak.
With Water: Spices come out nicely, more cinnamon.
Overall: The wine character is big, not so much comes out of the 12 years in white oak. Tasty enough, though the background spirits seems simple.
