Member Ratings and Notes
Chris
 
N: Medicinal, cherries
P: Blood oranges and cough drops, delicious.
F: Long
Very good. 
Adam
 
Sweet syrupy delight, some herbal green in finish, sappy, hints of smoke. 
AS
 
Hazelnut nose, nutty and rich, very smooth, silky, soft wave-like finish.  Very good. 
Andy
 
Sherry syrup, hits fast, drops and then evens out. 
JS
 
[No notes] 
RH
 
Herbal blossom, soft to the touch [?], sweet light honey. 
Sku
 

Nose:  Cherries and anise.

 

Palate: Sherry, more cherries; at the end some funkier flavors develop, coastal notes and some spice, then an old fireplace.

 

Finish: Sherry and a slight bitterness.

 

Great sherried malt.

 
Ryan
 

Sweet and fruity. Nutmeg. Subtle on the palate. Some slight spicy pepper notes on the finish. Sherry is present throughout. 

 
Fuji
 
Semi sweet sherry fruit.  Purple grape, fresh cut exotic wood and vanilla.  Similar profile to the round dumpy OB HPs bottled in the early 2000's with more complexity and balance.
