First third creates familiar AJ style of flavors centered around spicy cedar, dried mixed nuts and sweetened bread. Through retrohaling, strong black pepper is front and center, followed by spicy cedar and dried roasted nuts. The finish is fairly long, hitting the rear palate with earthy grittiness and black pepper. Towards the tail end of the first third, additional notes of a dry barnyard and wood transitions from a cedar type to a charred oak. Strength and body is for the most part medium.
