Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Nose of resinous varnish, with strong fruit -- notably canteloupe -- and tobacco hints.  Palate enters smooth and easy and sweet, but rich, with more melon in the background.  This continues with woody/spicy notes with maybe some tobacco and ginger. The medium-length finish of good, rich spice has slight smoke notes creeping in.  Very enjoyable.

P: Woody, balanced malt and cereal, slight oiliness
F: Smooth medium short finish

Honey and nuts.  Unsweeted Werther's Originals.  Finish is long (enough) but not especially great.

Fuji
 

Toasted malts, fruits and a bit floral.

 

 
Ries
 

n: honey on wheat toast, nice inviting malt nose, doublemint gum.

 

t: honey graham crackers in liquid form. Nice malt quality to this, very sweet and full of golden raisins, butterscotch chews, and a nice touch of spice from the wood. Honey Nut Cheerios in the finish.

 

I can see why blenders like this. A very safe base malt with a clean honey nose and the taste to match. A bit too standard (boring) for my taste, but it's enjoyable and easy to drink.
