Member Ratings and Notes
N: Bubblegum and tobacco, with some fake marshmallow vapors (like the ones in ready mix cocoa) and faint oakiness.
P: Oily and full and sweet and woody and balanced and...and...thaz it.
F: Dries out as the flavor fades, lingering taste is woody but with enough sugars and a light floweriness that keeps you coming back.
This stuff definitely grows on ya, I tasted this last night and was thinking B-, but I like it more tonight.  (Note:  In a hotel room and tasted out of a glass coffee mug.  So nose may be better than reported.) 

Nose is bright and lively with something chemically like the smell of Crazy String. Palate is good and pleasant enough, kinda skunky.


It's not a stunner of a bourbon, but better than good enough.
