Hefty bottle for the price! Plump and plush plum, raspberry, blackberry and American oak vanilla. A solid, meaty base with smoky incense and potpourri.  Offers a medium-full body with a satin smooth generous fruit entry before falling away to a clean, if somewhat short, finish. Nothing too complex but pleasant.

RRP: $19.99
Alc: 14%
Rating: 17/20 (87/100)
