Member Ratings and Notes

n:  Nice.  Soot, cinnamon and a bag of pipe tobacco.

 

p:   Leans more toward soot than the nose might indicate. Ashes, dry leaves and walnut oil.  This one definitely coats the mouth and sticks around for a long finish.

 

This was doesn't stand above annual fad release bottlings, but it does stand proudy shoulder to shoulder with its predecessors, as usual, slightly different, never fantastic, but always a solid dram.

 

B/B+

Charred oak notes with fresh tar/ asphalt.  Bitter peat on the palate.  Didn't get much in way of complexity and not much of a finish.  Kind of all over the place.
