Nose: The nose is quite nice with very Beam corn syrup notes, some fruit candy and cough syrup. Palate: Starts with some nice fruit notes, turns vanilla, and then goes flat pretty quickly, becoming thing and watery.
N: Initially has some corn and some slight clay earthiness. Light vanilla cream, moderate wood, slight whiff of cherries.
P: Light mouthfeel, slightly warming, with the clay earthiness. Lightweight - not a lot of flavor on the palate. Starts to turn bitter with a vegetal note -- low level new-makey with sweetness as well, the raw sugar note that gets me with Beam stuff.
F: Warm but fleeting. Light cherry note and moderate length, but it dries out and becomes just sort of indistinctly alcohol-like. Not strong though. Also has the new-make on the finish with the grainy sugar.
There's just not much happening past the nose here. It's not bad, because there's not much going on. If there was just a little more of everything (except for the newmake), this could almost edge up to B-.
