Member Ratings and Notes
Floral. A good subtle sweetness. Worthy of being in a collection based on it's uniqueness. (This became one of my favorites in the reserves, it will be missed)
Floral nose with honeysuckle and Jolly Rancher Watermelon.  Palate is sweet and floral.  Smooth.  Jolly Rancher Watermelon flavor still poking through, really interesting, esepcially in the finish, where herbs and rosemary join.  A really interesting whisky -- so interesting that an otherwise B+ bottle deserves an: A-
Sweet nose with notes of honey and fruit.  Nice complicated/pleasant taste.  Very unique and pleasant. 
Floral, honeysuckle nose. A sweet whisky (watermellon?), with just enough bite and a short, pleasant finish. There's really nothing too substantial going on, but rather tasty.
