Member Ratings and Notes

N: Dark initially with some black cherry, but lightens with corn apparent. Maple syrup in abundance, toffee, light marshmallowy notes. Nice grains, light sweet hints of caramel. Nice oak after a minute giving it a big, strong balanced nose.

 

P: Rich mouthfeel; sweet with caramel and toffee and tons of maple syrup. Gentle heat leaning towards pepper. Light orange notes.

 

F: Warming more; cinnamon. Lasting. A little black tea, a little orange note, some wood; slightly tannic. A faint musty melon rind note.

 

This is pretty good. Sweet but with a little oakiness to balance it.

Nose: Really nice nose with cherries and vanilla (Cherry Garcia?)

 

Palate: Sweet vanilla notes with some wood then acidic.

 

Finish: Very sweet corn notes.

 

A nice nose but the palate was overly sweet and simplistic.
