Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: honeycomb wax and lavender initially. Green apple streusel with white sugar frosting and nutmeg.

 

t: surprisingly good, follows the nose with spiced apple cider and a sourdough malt in the middle. Very bright and spicy that moves to citrus sugar and finishes oaky.

 

Conversation whisky; I really enjoyed this and was pleasantly surprised in the flavor depth and high ABV. Very promising!

 

[B. / almost B+]

 
Fuji
 
N: Toasted salty peanuts, butter cream and vanilla.  
P: Clean and crisp fruit (green apple and pear).
F: Malty and creamy medium finish

While this didn’t have a lot by way of complexity, I found it clean, straight forward and enjoyable.
