Member Ratings and Notes

n: faint cherry syrup


p: A tad less sweet than the other batches.  White pepper with a hint of cough syrup.  A deviation from the last few batches I've tasted.  Less emphasis on sherry but still decent.

Lots of alcohol vapors initially.  It's very nutty.  Stale trail mix and stale almond honey oat cereal. The sherry doesn't pop like older batches. The red fruit lingers and smells of cherry hard candy/ cough drops. The sherry shows alot better on the palate (thankfully). A bit of spicy heat emerges mid palate along with some staleness. Long lingering finish of sour cherry and bitter wax.

Tasted Completely blind.  My notes indicate:  Nose: Cream sherry and sweet butter. Mouth: Butter cream busquits and nice long toffee in the finish. 


One of the better Batches IMHO.
