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: Light heather sweetness and golden raisins. Oatmeal with cinnamon-sugar sprinkled on top. Very clean and hard to find beyond malt and oak.


t: Light honey with a nice floral element but quite thin and very unobtrusive. Some caramel and oak, but it's so light and thin that you really have to dig. Maybe some powdered sugar.


It's very easy to drink and safe, but also very boring. This is about as easy of a drinker as you can get.  [C+]
