Member Ratings and Notes

N: Floral. Slight caramel. A little cinnamon, some orange, vanilla. Light on the nose. A bit of corn and cereal grain.


P: Mouth-coating and rich. Big push of caramel initially, followed by vanilla, cinnamon, light orange and a bit of black cherry. Starts a gentle warming.


F: Strong, big black cherry note at first, heat not present on the nose and palate is assertive here. White pepper, a bit of marshmallow, light hay. Moderately woody. Nice and long-lasting.


Really enjoyable finish. This one builds and builds. 


Nose: Nice nose with a good amount of rye spice and some corn syrupy sweetness.


Palate: Light and sweet bourbon, a bit of cough syrup moving to spice and a bit of bitterness


Finish: Peppery, spicy


Inoffensive but not interesting
