Member Ratings and Notes

n: Musty, peach jolly rancher


p: Zowwy!  Runs hot.  Under-ripe peach (not sweet), thai chili paste.  Flash finish.  Not a gentle dram, but a real pickmeup.


Red Bull Glen Ord gives you wiiiingggs!

N: Nasal flaring, hot white wine.
P: Wide and sweet, gotz some power due to the abv but this would be real weak at 46%.  Just not a very active cask or complex spirit.
F: The flavor does build up after a while, sweet and nectary, lemon coffee cake. 
Oaky and fruity nose (fresh green apples) with slight farmyard. Palate is a bit rough, but delivers a big bright fruity kick. I really like this profile in general -- just clean whisky and wood. The casks seems slightly past its prime, but it's still pretty tasty.
