Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
N: I actually gagged a little bit when I smelled this.  Smells like peanuts and vomit.
P: Strange and oily, the grain component is very prominent here, and it's not a great tasting one.
F: A wisp of fruit in the finish provides some relief, but it's too little too late.

I smell caramel, fruity tones with notable apples, bubblegum, and alcohol. Palate presents malty flavors and grassy notes, but they're quickly usurped by really spiritous stuff... and that pretty much becomes the whole experience, particularly lingering in the finish. I'm a little confused as to what the blender's objective is here. This tastes to me like a scotch that should be much, much less expensive. But it's certainly drinkable.

p: Interesting evergreen and faint terpentine.
