Nose:  Massive wood, plywood.

Palate:  Woody, chewy mouthfeel, slightly bitter, then slightly salty.

Finish:  Wood chips and the a sweet wood note (sap).

 

This is a huge fresh wood attack, but it works giving a sharp and interesting woody note to the malt.  Some of the rawness makes it taste like it was aged in Tuthilltown casks instead of ex-sherry octaves.
