NOTES:
Honey malt | Cocoa butter | White pepper

I already want more of this little fella. Big smooth bright weighty notes. Clean delineations. Quite the classic profile with a twist (of lemon). Sweetness leads via honey malt which settles into a mead-like thing. Cocoa butter, smoothly richly. Rico Suave, mi amigo. White pepper brisks the butter cedar structure, lemon-y bits go thatta way.

Midsection holds the primaries up-high. Bulging creme brulee. Savory pale grains. Bright dense earth, sunlit layers. Aroma is sweet spice savoriness. Suede, cardamom, dandelion, a spoonful of sugar. All that nose finds the mouth; dances on the palate. Easy delivery, well-choreographed. B I G on character alongside complexity. Cool nuances, bro. Well-rounded. Superbly if not supremely balanced.

Built to perform sans complaint. Well, a bit of top-leaf lags then self-corrects, in the 1/3. Beautiful draw, effortless but not wide-open. Copious cumulus clouds, as tear-free as baby shampoo. Smooth as a baby's bottom. Oh, baby! Lush & plush nowhere near cloying. Luxuriant. The baby's asleep, c'mere, Momma. Fade to black, the curtain closes.
