fantastic! the nose gives little indication of the palate because it is faint (almost none).small wiff of agave and sugar.the palate is best described as a dark red sweet apple.wonderful spices.mainly cinnamon and black pepper.great smoke and a deep sweet complexity.there is some fleeting heat up front but in a pleasant way.long and beautiful finish.makes your taste buds rave!one of the best i have had in a while!
