Member Ratings and Notes

N: A little bit of pepper, some oak; slight earthiness. Some rye spice on the nose; somewhat dry. Light apples and cinnamon. Some light peaches and a hint of apricot.

 

P: Rich in the mouth. Fruitiness continues; some apples and light apricots. Very juicy. A bit of vanilla providing some depth but it's not strong. Very gentle heat. Generally sweet and agreeable.

 

F: Warming substantially from the palate. More light vanilla and lighter fruits - more peach and apricot type notes. Light cinnamon, a distinct black cherry kick initially.

 

he nose and finish are nice enough but the palate is somewhat muted and keeps this from a higher score. It's quite nice though.

The nose has barrel char, vanilla and bay.  The palate is sweet and spicy all at once, well balanced corn and rye notes that last into the finish. Very solid (like concrete...floors that is).
