Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

Nose:  Reserved and malty.  Very light.

Palate:  A good start - syrupy, malty and fruity with some sweet, white wine notes.  A bitterness starts at midpalate and gets stronger toward the end where it reaches bitter melon levels (well, not quite, but going in that direction).  

Finish:  Unfortunately, it's the bitterness that dominates the finish.

 

This has some of the barrel strength lowland character I like but it's not quite balanced with those bitter notes late palate and into the finish.    C+/B-

 
Fuji
 

N: Olive oil, warm toast, with citrus and spice.  Also has a chalky aspect that was wierd.

P: Light citrus water, salty and metallic

F: Bitter
