Member Ratings and Notes
N: Lemon, olive oil (really), organic, zesty. 
P: This is f**king awesome. [Would love to see that quoted on a shelf talker] Super exotic and powerful spice, then purple fruits and caramel candies (like Werther's Original).
F: Resinous and nutty, hazelnut.
Yeah, that's a winner.    

Fruit candy - apple jolly ranchers on the nose.  Really great nose!

Sweet honey and fruity bubblegum palate.  Fabulous.

Finish.  A bit disappointing as it was a hit & Run.  With a longer finish this would have been a solid A.


Nose:  Rich, sweet, fruit notes.  Apricot jam.  Really beautiful nose.

Palate:  Sweet fruit notes with oak coming on mid-palate.  Really well balanced and pretty unique.

Just delicious. 


Wow, the nose! Mulling spices and salty matzoh ball soup. I've been smelling that in a couple other whiskies lately, and I have no idea why... sort of that smell of brine-y chicken stock.


Palate is delicious and rather sweet for the age. Fruity stuff. The label mentions strawberries, and they're definitely in here -- not strongly -- but they're here, garden-fresh strawberries that continue through the finish... which gets herbal. More to reveal on every sip, cinnamon, lavender, bay leaves, oregano... all restrained, but there and delicious.  Excellent!

Very sweet and candied withcotton candy, sweet vanilla and and light floral notes.

Intense mango perfume. Stunning.
