Member Ratings and Notes

N: Very fruity, kind of a mix of fruit cocktail syrup and a light white wine. Some confectioner's sugar, very floral. I get little flashes of Jolly Rancher candy (watermelon, maybe cherry). Some light wood but this is all about fruit. 

 

P: A little more substantial on the palate than the nose suggests; with some wood and a light dusting of white pepper. A little smoked paprika behind that. Tons of malt, a little sweet barley sugar. 
 
F: Somewhat dry, malt sugars, wood, generally sweet. 
 
Very interesting. The nose suggests something syrupy like a Balblair, but the palate comes in much more grounded and earthy with a faint smokiness. It's unusual but I enjoyed it.

Palate: Juicy fruit, light, fruity notes,

Finish: Mostly malt

 

Inoffensive but pretty blah
