Member Ratings and Notes
Nose:  Really spice & peppery.
Palate:  salt & pepper with just a touch of sherry.
Finish:  Still spicy.

Fun and a bit weird.

N: Oily and buttery nuttiness with peaches.  There was wine in the nose too.

P: Youg cherries, white grapes and sherry

F: Spicy peppery finish


N: First nose was a bit musty, but that passed quickly and terrific pineapple and melon notes emerged.   Fruit cup in oil.
P: That's a really tasty, fruity, nectary, syrupy, thang.   
F: Turkish delights (Yes, I have had them, in Turkey no less).
Punchy and refreshing, I like this a lot.
n: Calcium carbide.
p:  Punchy, crisp, potpouri.  Happy.

N: Vegetable sour - later more caramel & floral

P: Sweeter & more floral, also spicy

F: Long & pleasant


Not my favorite flavors, but really good for what it does.  

Grassy, honey-sweet notes, mineral stuff, hay, more grass, YUM. This is exactly what a not-too-much-of-anything malt should be. Fantastic stuff that hits the spot when I don't want any sherry or peat. Why didn't I buy more of this when I could?
I've been drinking the last few inches of this bottle over the past few nights (July 2014), and I have to say, it's fantastic. (Note that LAWS preserves all our whiskeys, so this hasn't oxidized or aged much).
