Member Ratings and Notes
Tim
 

N: Slightly sharp and spirity. Moderate bananas and a bit of marzipan. Red wine. Light grains, faint marshmallow note.

 

P: Thin. Mildly astringent yet oddly buttery. Somewhat woody. Sichuan pepper. Light maple syrup. Moderately warming. Black cherry undertone.

 

F: Hot and initially dry. Maple syrup continues. Slightly medicinal. More straightforward pepper notes; black cherry. Dry in the mouth with some dry wood.

 

Interesting for the assemblage of flavors, but it doesn't hang together coherently. It's kind of all over the place.

Nose: Medicinal, some cocoa notes.

 

Palate: Chemically, a bit smoky, like burning plastic, bourbon notes are in the back ground but emerge with spice just in time to make this one decent

 

Finish: Chemically after taste

 

Interesting but a bit off.
