Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

One whiff and you’re transported to the warehouse, the musty air dense with damp oak and alcohol. Grainy aromatics give way to the brand’s characteristic vanilla and sticky-sweet caramel popcorn on the palate. Wood spice crackles throughout the long finish.
