Member Ratings and Notes

The nose is very similar to a Stagg (which makes sense given that it's the same mashbill and a similar age and proof), with huge polished wood notes and some candy sweetness. It also has some good rye type notes with some light mint and spice. The palate has a lot going on; there's wood, vanilla, anise, mint and some rye; the only flaw is an acidic note that pushes some of the other flavors to the background around mid-palate. The finish is sweet mint and spice, like a good mint julep. It's very hot, of course, but once it's diluted and airs out a bit, it's very nice.
