Member Ratings and Notes

N: A nice, bready rye. Orange top notes, some clove and nutmeg, and plenty of wood. 

 

P: Rye in a big way, consistently but gently warming. Orange and lightly vanilla sweetness later, with wood and cherry. Moderate body, a touch of mint. 
 
F: Cherry and orange is pronounced. A moderate heat, but still gentle. 
 
Easy drinking in the extreme.

The nose is sweet and I get even more sugar than the 2006 release. Very mellow ad the rye is really present in this one. However, the spice and citrus notes of the earlier releases seem to be lingering in the background. To me, this is very similar to the 2006 release, but certain notes are accentuated. Others I tasted with think they are more signficiat differences. [4/14/13]

Lush sweetness of warm syrup and mulling spiciness. Vinegar notes in the back. Dense on the palate with herbal stuff and rye spice emerging mid palate. Lightly sweet vanilla finish that evolves into bitterness of dark leafy veggies.
