N: Nice, slight prickle.  Rye spice, kind of an interesting nose overall and slightly creamy. 

 

P: Smooth on the palate, slightly warm, slightly bitter wood. Apple skin. Dusty. 

 

F: Spice notes continue but it's dry. Gets some vinyl weirdness happening.

 

I'm forgainst it.

I just don't get a whole lot from this. And that not-muchness is over-oaked, which is the problem here. Too leathery after a few sips.
