Upon nosing the dram, I was greeted with a wonderful nose full of leather, coffee, dark chocolate, raspberry, spicy smoked meat; great deal of complexity shown here. The palate shows similar notes, but less complex when compared to the nose, a distinctive burnt wood character shown here, followed by a long finish, a nice array of smoke, coffee, oak tannins, and peppery spice. Despite it being NAS, Jack Wiebers is doing great work here. Highly recommended.
