Nose: glue-ey for quite some time, then sweet, citrus, sweet blood oranges, dried fruits, fat raisins, cranberries, figs, dates, sweet, thick syrup, tobacco leaves, milk chocolate
Palate: sweet, spicy, hot jalapeños, dried fruit, figs, dates, banana chips, citrus, lemon skin, lime juice, milk chocolate

Conclusion: Well, that’s nice… If I would have been a little earlier with making my note, I might have had a time to go find and purchase a bottle. My bad, looking forward to other expressions of the Grainman though, there is more where this came from…
