Member Ratings and Notes
My favorite of the Fine Oak range, this one's a bit sweeter with more vanilla/caramel aspects.  I'll take it over the 21 any day. 
Nose is sweet and oaky, with a little marshmallow and chocolate.  Taste is rather one dimensionally oaky and sweet, perfect in that aspect, enjoyable but not that interesting.  It's got no hook to bring me back. 

n: heather sweetness, dried fig, and golden raisins. Oatmeal with cinnamon-sugar sprinkled on top. Very clean and hard to find beyond dried tropical fruit, malt, and oak.


t: honey with a nice floral element. Vanilla malt, chewy black grapes, and light brown sugar sweetness are main flavors. Some caramel and oak, but you really have to dig. Light white pepper, sweet tropical fruit, and powdered sugar in finish. Overall quite thin and very unobtrusive; it's very easy to drink and safe, but also very boring.  [B-/C+]
