Nose is woody and flowery with a raw alcohol note. Palate is very weak and what little flavor there is fades into a blecky woodiness. Despite being cooped up in a snow storm with nothing else to drink, I couldn't get through a second glass of this. And I really wanted to. Clearly there must be some barrels that just don't make the cut to go into one of the major brands. They keep them in the warehouse hoping they'll get better with age. And when they don't, they end up here, Origine unknown.
