Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Muted notes of Madagascar vanilla, black tea, and toasted toffee emerge on the nose. The palate is medium dry, soft and earthy. Flavors are driven by hints of oak, mild spices, and a soft smoky finish. (Apr 2014)
itâ€™s clear from the nose that Oakheart is more sweet than spicy. Creamy vanilla dominates the nose, which only has a very slight and subtle undercurrent of oak and cinnamon spice. The transition is a smooth one and the oak spice is well balanced with the sweet vanilla. The finish is fairly short, soft, and easy with vanilla lingering on the palate with only a suggestion of cinnamon underneath.
