Commonly referred to as Black Label, the color is noticeably dark for a younger, 
less than 8 year old product like this. The nose takes it a step forward with burnt 
brown sugar, fruit, and cinnamon. But the palate reveals its youth with a mouthful 
of grains and acidity. However, it's saved by final notes ofhoney, vanilla, caramel, 
soft oak, and coconut. A short finish disappoints, but this is a cocktail or cola contender.
