Member Ratings and Notes
Sharp and spicy.  Finish is like an old guy who wants to leave the party, he doesn't stay long.  Finish is a bit soapy but this is very good.  Add water.
Spice, mint, and cedar.  Takes water well.  Peppery finish with more of the same.
Nose is quiet.  Palate has some spice and cinnamon -- strong, and keeps going.  Good, but one-note.  Sharp.  Finish is long.
Indistinct nose. Light. Toffee, Rotten fruit, ammonia

Sweet, fruit, alcohol. 

Not much of a nose, but what's there is slightly rich and honied. There's an initial HOT, somewhat slightly sweet burst of flavor that goes away reasonably quickly. Solid, but nothing special.
N: Very woody, desk drawers, slight sweetness.
P: Initial floral burst, but the abv has not been tamed with age as in better 20+ year cask strength bottles.
F: Floral notes lasts long, a redeeming quality.
Pretty enjoyable stuff once you get past the burn.
wow - the notes on this are all over the board.  Some really like it and others are not so impressed.  I do like this kind of lighter fruity malt that has a smokey finish that keps going.  B/B+ and gets the B+ but just barely.
