Member Ratings and Notes

N: Sweet candied fruit nose. Lots of smells of the pine forest with some floral notes. The nose gets deeper with tobacco, black licorice and some spice.


P: Good consistency and structure. Its bitter sweet and awesome. Dark sherry fruits contrast the zesty tangerines and lemons. It dovetails to wax , licorice and Chinese preserved plums.


F: Long vegetal finish much like bitter greens.


A great malt with a rich nose. It has all the stuff I like from sherry bombs while retaining complexity and balance. It isn't overly sweet so you can drink multiple pours. I did! B+/A-


N: Sweet and nectary, some notes of chocolate.   Honey and heather.

P: Very well rounded and sweet.   Light sherry, but very warm tasting and delicious.   Well balanced.   Great oily mouth feel.

F: Long and sugary.

This is dangerously drinkable stuff.


N: Decent.  Perhaps distant dark fruits with cedar.


p: Oily and a bit dry on the sherry.  Too dry.  I like Farc sweeter.  There is a bit of damp firewood that plays with the dry sherry.  Nothing to complain about here, but is doesn't make we want to jump out and find more.
