Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
At first woody and decent, but the finish destroys it and becomes an ashtray at the end. D+

Retasted: It's odd, I remember the ashtray aspect of this so clearly... but it's not so bad as I recall, and mildly enjoyable and drinkable.  Not a fave, though.  C+
 
AS
 
Light smokey wood nose, very smooth and somewhat non-descript flavor, not much depth.  Finish and aftertaste are lingering and medicinal with a taste and feel or burnt tobacco in the back of the mouth.  Not very enjoyable overall.  
CF
 
Nose: meh. Flavor: smokey and blah. Finish: Mediciney and dank.

Sea air and smoke, soapy tobbaco aftertaste.  Bad wood.

Very thin nose. This is pretty smooth, a slight sweetness at first, and then out of nowhere it really explodes on the palate. Unfortunately, "explosion" is the accurate descriptor here - you're now drinking liquid ashes. And not in a good, peaty way. This tastes bad. AH's ashtray description is spot-on. I would not choose to drink this, particularly at this price point.

Slight, sweet, cotton candy nose.  Palate is odd -- begins easy and smooth, then turns rank.  Finish is a long, odd aftertaste -- like wet wood with hints of medicinal cherry. And yet, I don't hate it.  
JC
 
Finished smooth then bam.  And not bam in the good way.  Like the biting tinfoil bam.  There we go. 
JH
 
No nose at all for me.  Smooth drinking, though.  Has a weird, but subtle aftertaste.  Like feet.  Can't tell if that's a good thing or not yet.  After retasting, I assign it the term "uneventful." 
JS
 
Enjoyable nose and taste - but the finish ruins the whole party after a nice ride up. Complicatedly gross finish
