Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of graham cracker, spiced rice pudding, madagascar vanilla, and turbinado sugar with a round, vibrant, dryish medium-full body and an effortless, involved, very long finish displaying elements of creme brulee, bananas foster, hazelnut creme, and toasted brioche dusted with cinnamon and sugar.
