Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 
Nose: slightly nutty, like the center of a Three Musketeers bar.

 

Palate: Sweet, almost Canadian-like, fairly light, a bit of citrus as it trails off.

 

Finish: A tangy, sour finish.

 

I've liked this in the past, but the bottles seem to vary.

 

 
Ries
 

n: cinnamon spice, green banana, orange spice. Hot and raw, vanilla, and chalk dust/mineral.

 

t: green banana, bitter orange peel (i.e. kumquats). Lotsa of charred sweet corn and charcoal. Bitter tannins and green straw in hot finish. I like the higher ABV, but this is very simplistic.

 

[bottle from 2016 reviewed, C+/B-] The 1980s stuff is vastly better.
