Tasting Notes:

Nose: Surprisingly delicate given the proof. Vanilla, whipping cream and just a touch of nutmeg are present. While there are suggestions of ethanol, it's somehow quite subtle and akin to a typical 100 proof whiskey.

Palate: This one opens with notes of toasted bread and cinnamon. It very quickly explodes with a burst of flavor has no good comparison. It takes a few sips to characterize it though eventually oak and caramel become clear. The back of the palate is obscured by that huge explosion, which persists.

Finish: Long, intense and fairly classic.

The above note are written without water or (gasp) ice. When 5 drops per oz were added, notes of cocoa, butterscotch pudding and soft pretzel become evident.
