Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 
n: raspberry, clove, earthy oak, and resin. Brown sugar, cereal, and hint of black plum.

t: golden ripe fruit, peach, and tons of minty rye spice. Tannic oak in middle that smooths to dill and vanilla in the middle. Menthol is strong with cherry and cedar at the finish. Nice mouthfeel, but astringent flavor throughout.
 
A bit of water reduces the sharpness in the burn, but lost the minty spice. [B/B-]
