Member Ratings and Notes

N: Slightly sharp and spirity. Moderate bananas and a bit of marzipan. Red wine. Light grains, faint marshmallow note.


P: Thin. Mildly astringent yet oddly buttery. Somewhat woody. Sichuan pepper. Light maple syrup. Moderately warming. Black cherry undertone.


F: Hot and initially dry. Maple syrup continues. Slightly medicinal. More straightforward pepper notes; black cherry. Dry in the mouth with some dry wood.


Interesting for the assemblage of flavors, but it doesn't hang together coherently. It's kind of all over the place. 


Nose: Medicinal, some cocoa notes.


Palate: Chemically, a bit smoky, like burning plastic, bourbon notes are in the back ground but emerge with spice just in time to make this one decent


Finish: Chemically after taste


Interesting but a bit off.
