Colour: Noticeably darker in hue than Batch 2. Deep amber tones with fine, silky legs.
Nose: Not as abrasive off the pour as Batch 2. Cinnamon rolls with buttercream icing, mandarin oranges, raisins, followed shortly by a subtle charred oak and the slightest hint of cigar smoke. Layered very nicely.
Palate: Wow. The layers here segue flawlessly. Loads of cinnamon toast, spiced plums, mandarin orange, golden raisin, ginger candy, and soft wisps of pipe smoke. Though the alcohol by volume on this batch is slightly higher than on Batch 2, the finish is far more rounded and fuller without providing nearly as much of a bite. Notes of rich toffee lingering long after the swallow. Marvellous.
