Member Ratings and Notes
Fuji
 

N: Winey (almost like a finish).  Lots of tartness from limesmixed in with charred fatty meats and a fair bit of peat in the back.

P: Initially dominated by musty stale notes that were unpleasant.  Yeasty/ bready notes come through followed by a bit of spice that disappears quickly.  I didnt get much on the finish except for some sulphur/ rubber.  B-/C+

n: Sulpher and garbage

 

p:  Dirty pail. Metallic.  Salt.  Not my thing.

 

Springbank distillery sinks even lower.  Sad. 

 
Ries
 

n: wet grassy peat smoke, cinnamon candies, and clove cigarettes. Smells of salted ham and a doused paper fire.

 

t: bread dough that was in an industrial fire with a dose of the sulphur (rotten eggs) that I didn't like. The peat smoke is very subdued and tastes like a wine cask-type finish; it has this weird sour/sweet plastic quality. There aren't too many other elements that show, some prune and seasalt, but the sour note stays through the finish. I kept drinking it to see if I'd come around, but I liked it even less.
