Appearance: Amber color, oily.
Nose: Cinnamon cookies, cherry, raisins, age / mustiness.
Palate: Sweet raisins, vanilla, oak, apple, cherry. Rather bourbon-like. Orange marmalade, cinnamon hot ball.
Finish: Cinnamon hot ball candy, cherry, vanilla, black pepper.
With Water: Edges mellowed, cherry, raisin, cinnamon intensify.
Overall: Pretty decent all around. Has aged well and certainly worth a try at this price. Probably would not buy old bottles for home consumption though—and now I don’t have to.
