Nose: Vanilla and lots of spice going on, just fitting for its name : Cinnamon,Ginger,a sweet tasted oak nose, with a punch.

Palate: Spicy mama heaven. Cinnamon and ginger deliver the spicy blast, assisted by butter and wee milk chocolate notes as well to complete the very enjoyable package.

Finish : Long, spices and cocoa, wood and cinnamon.

bottom line:

This little dram delivers big time. Immensely drinkable, lovable and spicy, with the sweetness and the cocoa finish. toasted oak done right. i don't know about the first generation, but this one is definitely a winner. A great dram for a good price (~$55). John Glaser, you did again. Magic.

Hmmm... a holiday dram ... sounds like it would pair well with pumpkin ale, or even pie ! I do wonder how the distillers generate those spicy flavors ... anyone know ? Anyway @galg, thanks for revealing this one ... would really like to try it !
