Nose: Sweet berries, spices, chocolate syrup, caramel, oak.

Palate: Deep berries like strawberries, raspberry syrup over chocolate cake with layers of chocolate mousse, exactly like PF Changs' Wall of Chocolate dessert. Medium bodied, spices, honey, caramel, a touch of papaya and molasses, cashews.

Finish: Medium to long, cake dough, confectioners sugar.

This is a fine dram indeed. It's refined and elegant--very well balanced. It plays it safe, it doesn't want to create wake. Is there such thing as too well balanced? This would be above 90, if it was non-chilled filtered,46% abv.
