Nose: lighter than the last. Little oak and a little caramel? Very pleasant, but nothing special.
Taste: oak ? light, a little maple, light leather, vanilla, some oak
Finish: Vanilla, oak and light leather. Not as complex as the last bottle
Overall: This one is lighter than the last one I had. Half way through this bottle now, and looking forward to the second half. I wish it was as rich as the first bottle, but worth the price. Fun drinker, great for an evening of catch-up with old friends
