Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

Dry and oaked malt initially; raisins and red cherry. Mildly sweet with vanilla caramel and cocoa in middle. This is nicer with less sweetness (Mac red fruit) and more wood influenced, but nothing mouth-watering. Dry all-spice in finish that doesn't last too long. Mid-palate is great but the finish is just flat and I don't get the "rare cask" aspect to this. There should be more oooomph to it to deserve the name, but it's just another overpriced NAS...  [B/B-]
