Member Ratings and Notes

n:  Just a typical pleasing maltiness

 

p:  Nice mouthfeel initially with sort of a 4 grain bread flavor.  Raw wood.  Tangy and punchy (sorry).  Definitely a lively malt that may require a bit of water taming.

 

With water.  Meh.  Doesn't really bring out the flavors.

 

B-/B

n: smoked apricot, malt, elusive smoke (mostly earthy), paper glue. Walnut + orange peel.

 

t: sweet + classic fruit, follows the nose but very hard to taste the peat aspects - it's more like damp earth and charred wood. Finish is a tad bitter with dry oak and strong notes of white pepper with some gentle phenols. Overall it's fragmented and doesn't do it for me.  [whiskey B-, packaging A-/A]
