If you get your nose in there, you’re going to smell the memories of freshly cut wood in your dad’s workshop. There are the standard whiffs in here–caramel and oak and I guess what some say is vanilla–but there are also campfire ashes and your grandpa’s aftershave.

You’re going to smell memories of freshly cut wood in your dad’s workshop. There are the standard whiffs in here — caramel and oak and vanilla — but there are also campfire ashes and your grandpa’s aftershave. You’re going to smell how much can change in 18 years.
Sip. You’re going to taste the sweetness at first, let your guard down, and then you’re gonna get tongue-punched by an oak barrel. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
