Member Ratings and Notes
Tim
 

N: Medium wood, caramel, fairly upfront pepper across the nose. Extremely faint black cherry; some dusty grain. 

 

P: Sweet caramel, maple syrup in abundance, vanill and leaning toward marshmallow. Faintly earthy like clay; gentle warmth. 

 

F: Caramel and vanilla come through; black cherry starts to build on the finish and has maple syrup as a counterpoint. Nice gentle grain. Pleasantly lasting. 

 

Lightly nuanced; primarily a big, sweet bourbon. The finish is really a nice counterpoint on this one, giving some more dark fruit tartness.

Nose: Lots of wood, both fresh cut and old polished wood.

 

Palate: wood and some spicy notes a tiny bit of smoke, balanced well with some sweetness, creamy mouthfeel

 

Finish: Dry and a bit chewy with wood notes.
