The first third opens with a good balance of spice, earth and sweetness. Soft/white notes of abundant buttered bread, dried nuts, hay, mixed with a palate coating dry red pepper spice and cedar. The spice is nearly endless, lingering on the palate for minutes on end. Retrohaling brings the dry red pepper spice front and center, really waking up the sinuses. Strength by the end of the initial inch is medium-full and body is medium.
