Member Ratings and Notes
n: burnt sherry notes of heavy ash and dry wood. Full rounded nose with golden fruit, toffee, all with a center of charred wood and smoke.
t: follows the nose, dried dark fruit, smoked baklava, and toffee. Earthy in the middle. This is dark and smokey (oily peat tar and waxed fruit) but has a reallly quick finish.
Also, as a sucker for great package design, this is very aesthetically pleasing.
n: Faint spiced cedar
p: Funky. Carpet foam. Meh.
Sharp sour green apples, chalk, baby powder, and wet hay
Green pear, apple, toasted wheat bread, and barely water. Trail mix mid palate and burnt soy sauce on the very short finish.
