Nose: Freshly baked ginger bread with dusty wood and saw dust. There is evidence of musty warehouses (not in an unpleasant way) followed by vanilla, small spice, and the smell after a rain shower (dusty scent).
Taste: Oranges and canned fruit salad roll of the surface. Mellow spice and stale cigarettes are evident with entertaining malty implications.
Finish: Short and slightly flat, enjoyable but not highly distinguishable in comparison to other blends in the price catogery.
Balance: Well balanced, silky smooth, and clean blend. The aftertaste is amusing but a little short in my opinion. Never the less enjoyable in its own way.
Comments: I let this sit for a good 8 minutes before I considered nosing and tasting. This bottle had been sitting in the cupboard for sometime, quarter full, so a little air may have put a slight tinge to it.
