Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 
Nose:  Caramel, rye, pine and oak.
Palate:  Quite sweet with mint notes, some what diluted.
Finish:  Mostly sweet.

Sweet and straightforward, inoffensive but lacking in complexity.

N: Oak and spice initially. Some grains evident but not strong. Mild sweetness - light vanilla, slight marshmallow. The oak gets slightly sharp and has elements of a pine scent. Powdered sugar.

 

P: Medium thick, slightly warm. Moderately tannic - wood strong on the palate, light nutmeg, slight maple syrup. Faint cherries. Black tea.
 
F: Warm and lingering. Some light cinnamon. Cherries. Black tea and rich wood.
 
It's not bad but the flavors seem restrained.
