Member Ratings and Notes
Nose of caramel, buttery with some alcohol.  Palate is sweet and light, yet mouthfilling, caramel traces.  The finish kind of disappears, then reappears with mild, lingering caramel.  I went through a phase where I really enjoyed evenings in the Four Seasons lounge (a.k.a. the old Monkey Bar) sipping glasses of this.
N: Nose is feinty, alcohol, synthetic...I just want to say one word to you, just one word, are you listening? Plastics.
P: Initially oily and sweet and then just alcohol.
F: Grassy.

Alcoholic and sweet nose with a little spice (but mostly just alcohol) on the palate.  Fairly long finish with an interesting "reverb".

The nose is Bourbony; a light, wheated Bourbon like Maker's. Palate is very sweet, a bit of Bourbon corn, a bit Canadian tasting.  I get some spicy notes on the finish.  There's definitely corn in here and likely barley.  Wheat possibly too; I don't get any rye at all.
