Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 

Nose is mild with sandalwood, cut grass, hay. Chicken soup hints. Palate is full of coconut. Mildly fruity, a little caramel. Lots of oak in the finish, though not too much, with the coconut and mild spice lingering. Spiritous tails. 

 

The idea is better than the experience. Easy to drink but hard to heavily enjoy.

N: Acetone with a hint of candy corn.

P: Not a whole lot to speak about.  Mild and sweet, a faint white wine fruitiness which fades quickly.

F: Round and sweet initial, with a grainy burn.

Pretty unremarkable and disapointing.
