Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Nose of minty clove and resin/shellac. Palate is on the milder side, with some smoke, some of everything, with spice and slight sweetness. Finish is short and okay. 
DW
 
Nose is tight and sweet, with alcohol. Palate is good. Buttery and mild sweetness, with cherry. Finish it short, sweet, and hot. Pretty darn good sherried whisk(e)y. B+/A- 
Andy
 
Very smooth.  Finish slips away quietly and fast.  The pricey hooker Scotch. 
AS
 
Heats up as it lingers to a light medicinal burn.  Very interesting.  A-/B+ 
JS
 
Solid.  But not much of a finish.
