Honeycomb, graham cracker, lemon cream, vanilla, and barrel toast greet you on the nose. Creamy on the palate, alongside apple pie and brown butter. On the finish, there is a tension of underripe pear, with it's skin, and warm spices reminiscent of cinnamon and cedar that linger on the palate for days.
