Appearance: This is amber and burnt orange in color and has slow long legs. Nose: I smell banana, caramel, and black pepper with subtle notes of allspice and clove. Palate: There is an overall sweetness throughout this. I get a lot of caramel and toasted oak on the front. This transitions to a leathery spice at the mid-palate. The finish leaves my mouth dry with a slight astringency. The addition of water brings out a number of flavors I didn?t get straight out of the bottle. I get a hint of menthol right before the finish, which has lemon balm accompanied with a slight vegetal quality.
