Oak, oak, oak on the nose! Hah! I guess I know why the chose that name 🙂 It smells like a walk in the woods. Pine, juniper and dried leaves on the forrest floor. Woody and dry on the palate. Burnt caramel. The finish is warm and lingering. Brown sugar syrup and smooth.

My score: nose 18 / taste 19 / finish 19 / balance 20 = 76

Thanks, Thomas!
