Tasting Notes: On the body I get oats, sweet tobacco and half and half cream. The foot is red wine vinegar and dried peach. The cold draw is Cheerios, apricot tea, dried fruits and sweet grass. The first third is honey nut cheerios, amaretto, green tea and white pepper. I get some roasted nuts, sweet creamy smoke and a buttery quality. I keep waiting for the standard Connecticut shade bitterness to arrive and it never happens. Super impressed thus far. The second third begins with hints of florals, sweet croissant, creamy smoke, buttery mouth feel and more of the oats/grain. There is also an ever so slight citrus that reminds me of sprite. The third third get warmer and rounder in flavor. The almond reappears along with buttered toast. There is a lemongrass citrus and the florals are present as well. Reminds me of chai tea. If I didn’t know any better I would think this is a Cuban cigar in the final third. Pairing notes: Coffee all day. I call this the Good Morning for a reason. Tea with honey. After a breakfast of pancakes or French toast. With an espresso that has some sugar and a lemon rind. With a cream or root beer soda. After an Italian sandwich or a BLT (Uncle Paulie’s makes the best BLT you will ever have). With brandy, bourbon, dry white wine or pilsner beer. With caramel or white chocolate anything or after a bowl of cereal. Please tag @unclepauliesdeli and show some love the Privada way. Next time you are in Los Angeles stop in for a sub and tell them PCC sent you. PEACE!
