Member Ratings and Notes

Light yellow gold color. Very light citrus notes and extremely faint sugar notes in the background. There is also some mild wood, but a lot of alcohol vapor. The palate has some oak and a touch of grass. It is bitter, especially in the back of the mouth. It took my palate a few minutes to adjust, because although the proof is not that high, it comes out pretty hot. Overall, I think they left it in the barrel a little too long. Big/long finish.
