Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

Nose: Very light and malty with canned pear.

 

Palate: peat with some light fruit cocktail syrup which has a watery/diluted quality. It gains in acid toward late palate, then there's a bitterness that lasts into the finish.

 

Finish: Bitter-Peaty-fruity and then a sort of residual plastic note.


This started off okay until the bitter/plastic note in the finish which pushed it down.
