Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

Nose:  Malt, peat, auto shop, then some apricots

Palate:  It starts sweet, then gradually gets some peat and char notes.  The mouthfeel is oily but diluted.

Finish:  Old campfire.

 

This one feels heavily diluted even for a low abv malt.  It's really too bad it wasn't done at higher strength, which might have allowed it to really shine. As is, it has some good qualities but feels too watered down.
