Woods are verily on the draw, as well. Sweet cedar and seasoned oak with a ride-along along thick meaty leather. Peppercorn with a cayenne lilt and chili powder with baking spice nethers form a noticeable yet gentlepersonly piquancy. Salty snack bowl vibings of pretzels and beer nuts. Leathery oils and toasted sweet cream flesh the body out well. Semi-sweet chocolate drives them high sodium middlings. The under-belly is a complex and rather heighty eathiness -- darkly featuring molasses, Cuban coffee, and potpourri with dried fruits. Finish is a rather lengthy looksie at said under-things.
Well-balanced with a sweetly spiced fore-front offering a nice tongue-tingle cushioned in creaminess. Quite-nice depth of nuance and whilst not transitional, of satisfying complexities. The sweet/salty delivery is a really interesting back-drop. Bupkis bite nor sour bittering, a niceity in such heavy notes. Them heavy notes also let through a goodly amount of subtleties.
