    Balance: (22/25)  Everything works well together, but almost feels like its missing something, especially in the finish.
    • Nose
      (22/25) Lots of caramel and butterscotch, with some cotton candy, and vanilla.  Subtle hint of oak, and cereal.
    • Taste
      (24/25) Lots of sweetness, again caramel and butterscotch, some vanilla ice cream and snicker doodle cookies. 
    • Finish
      (17/25) Hints of spices, and lingering sweetness the front of the mouth, slowly fading towards the back.  But next to nothing in terms of feel/ tastein the throat.
