Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 
Nose:  Warm, sunny malt.  Sweet, floral notes.  Trace of sherry.  Very nice.
Palate:  Very straightforward and malty on the front of the palate.  A bit hot for the abv and some bitterness lasting into the finish.

Nose is nice, fruity and floral. Fruit Stripe gum.

 

Palate... hmm. Ugh. Kinda soapy. Fruit shows more in the finish, but so does some general blecch.

 

It opens up after a little time and improves, but doesn't finish well... I'm left with the taste of cheap white wine. Great intro but not-so-great follow-through. C/C+
