Member Ratings and Notes
N: Light wood and sherry.
P: Surprisingly un-sherried and much less enjoyable than the 15 year, more on par with the 10 year in terms of flavor. Weak.
F: Now the age emerges, but sadly in the form of excessive wood.
Well, at least it's not overpriced. 

Peppery, tingly, with a silky to oily palate.






n: Faintest citrus


p:  Velvety.  Toasted almonds.  Crushed pepper.  Lemon pine-sol.




Current 25 (pictured above): B-

Light preserved fruits, citrus and  bits of stale sherry notes. Dry on the palate with metallic tea water and cherry licorice.  Fudge on the finish


Older bottling with blue wax: B+

N: Ripe fruits: Soft yellow peach, nectarine, green grape, kiwi and mangos. Hints of melted butter, candle wax and white peppercorns.
P: Alot of the fruit on the nose comes through along with whiffs of smoke.
F: Lasting candy finish.


Older bottling with blue wax stamp and oval label.  The current stuff has more sherry type red fruit and isn't as vibrant. 


Current 25 (as pictured above): B/B-

n: strawberry jam, new football leather, sweeter (but lighter) sherry. Butterscotch with some lime citrus, and basement wood paneling.

t: Red berry syrup w/o much sweetness. Dry oakyness to this right after the initial taste. Black tea and cherry wood in the finish.


previous bottling: B+

n: real cherry flavoured pipe tobacco, more oak and vanilla. Bit of a deep musty note that I find appealing.

t: dried apricots, toffee, and back to the fresh pipe tobacco. The wood shows strongly in the middle with a bit of white pepper. Finish is waxy tobacco and long.
