Member Ratings and Notes

Nose:  Very nice, oaky with herbal notes and dried fruit. 
Palate:  Dry with a bit of citrus and some oak, not as nice as the nose, bitter on late palate.
Finish:  Mostly bitter.

N: Initially strong but settles down. Somewhat of a gentle mix of pepper and wood with light fruits (cherries, plums) in the background. Slightly generic alcohol note in the middle next to a lightly butterscotch note.

 

P: Thicker and richer. Creamy. Not warm. Good oak influence, light heat from pepper. Buttery. Vanilla. Cherries. Slightly bland, the flavors are underdeveloped.

 

F: Warms slightly, gives a dry blast of pepper and oak. Some vanilla in there too. Lasts mediumish length. Early kick of black cherries, and almost - for a moment - a slightly menthol, medicinal note.

 

The flavor is underdeveloped and would be great if it was a little more in focus. That said, it's easy drinking as cn be and I'd probably keep some of this on hand. Thick mouthfeel!
