Member Ratings and Notes

Nose: Rich and caramelly, wood and rye spice.
Palate: Big spicy rye notes, sandlewood. 
Finish: medicinal and a bit of a dirty/sandy note.


The finish is a let down but the nose and palate are strong enough to make up for it.


n:  Sweetened bourbon


p:  Very smooth.  Light leather.



Really sweet and clean. Still heavier in character, like all of these Pre-Pro distillates, but a relatively gentler and more candy-store character that's really nice. The alcoholy finish keeps the rating from being higher.

N: Birthday cake, delicate and "smooth" smelling, if that's possible. 

P: Hot cherry candy - cherry flavored Hot Tamales. Forceful and sugary. Very thick mouth feel. 

F: Those Hot Tamales just got real hot! But that cherriness I like continues, which I welcome. More birthday vanilla from the nose washes over. 


This was my favorite of the night. I could drink this too often (as they did in 1932.  Extra points (but not really) for a very cool and unique bottle. 

N: Very spicy on the nose, rye with some black licorice.
P: Falls a bit flat, sweet but not much character.
F: A bit of mint.
