Member Ratings and Notes

N: Moderate corn sweetness. Light orange notes; some light caramel, moderate but not harsh pine and rye notes. Some light overall graininess. 

 

P: Rich mouthfeel. Corn sweetness leads; a little caramel and some maple syrup behind it. A bit of orange brightness at the top of the palate. Some light oak. Generally sweet.

 

F: Light finish - some apple cider, a little light maple and some light oranges. Some cinnamon warmth to it as well as a dash of white pepper. Focused heavily on the fruit.

 

A nice, sweet and fruity whiskey. It's not particularly remarkable due to the closed off nose but the finish is actually different and pretty nice.

Nose: Great nose with vanilla, polished wood and a touch of rye spice.

 

Palate: Butterscotch and other candy notes with spice coming on mid palate and dominating by late.

 

Finish: Mostly rye spice.
