Wonderfully rich with the aromas and flavors of roasted nuts, almond butter, toffee, cocoa, vanilla, and sweet cream. A decadent classic.

The dominant aromatic feature is caramel. The palate entry features the cream/dairy element as much as caramel and nuts; the midpalate highlights the cream, the caramel flavoring, the spirit and the gentle spice. Concludes smooth, satiny and properly creamy with greater emphasis on the spice than the caramel.
