Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Nose of distinct honey mustard that's distinct and strong.  Some varnish and a wisp of skunk.  Palate is a sort of bizarre honey-sweetness mixed with dancing assorted spices.  Finishes as before, quite long, with minty notes, and skunk hints again.  An elegant yet not-so-restrained whisky, and a whirlwind of fantastic and strange spice-mint-organic-animal flavors and scents.

N: Deep and rich sherry with roasted coffee notes, fruity, apricots, orange rind, just awesome nose, everything you could hope for....
P: Figgy sherry on the verge of being overtaken by the devious Mr. Oak.
F: Dry and tart.
Starting to show it's age but still quite tasty.
