Member Ratings and Notes

N: Sweet on the nose - maple syrup; medium wood presence; white pepper with a dash of cinnamon; a faint touch of peach.  

 

P: Warming but sweet - a slight dab of chili oil with caramel; rich mouthfeel. Plenty of vanilla and a faintly earthy touch. Light grains, rye, and becoming slightly dry with a hint of bitter wood.

 

F: Warmth recedes beyond what's left on the tongue - black tea tannins and a hint of red wine. Some light caramel, wood notes heavy as well as grain. 

 

Some interesting heat and spice presence here. The nose hides a lot on this one; the palate has heat but not too much, and then the finish goes more tanic. Pretty interesting.

Nose: Rich, butterscotch sweetness, very nice

 

Palate: Not as rich as the nose, a bit diluted tasting, honey, wood sap and some spice notes in the background

 

Finish: Spicy but it dissipates quickly.
