On the nose is cigar box, pipe tobacco, Madeira cake and toffee, the company says, followed by oaky vanilla, limestone, flint and sweetened breakfast cereal. The palate has flavors of raisins, prunes, mince pie, candied walnut, chocolate-covered cherry, heather honey, toasted marshmallow, praline, nougat and pecan pie."
