Fruity, oaky, and complex: clean fruit - cherries, apples, with a good chunk of spice in the mix which rise up especially at the end. The corn is quite rich in the midst of it all - oily and sweet - and we see two sides to the oak - both a light earthy quality to it, but also a freshly-sawn oak feel - fresh, smoky, and full of vanilla.. At the end, dried apricots and white grape come through.
