You’ll probably never see this one unless you’re looking at the bottom shelves at your retailer, and I felt the same way until I tasted this one blind in a competition. The nose is clean with honey, vanilla, oak, and a hint of pipe tobacco. The taste is smooth and buttery at first with good cinnamon spiciness that fades to black licorice and honey. The finish is smooth and long with nice balance of cinnamon and honey. Very nice.
