Member Ratings and Notes
Sweet and woody and spicy and rich and good. Finishes slightly rough and hot, and as the glass is finished this becomes a problem. Yet this whisky continues to surprise as you drink it. Add a few drops of water. 
Nose is subtle.  Really soapy taste, and medicinal.  Finish comes in waves and changes.  Better with water. 
Develops from soft to bold.  Lasting finish. 
Nice deviation -- mint and licorice. 
Odd and unexpected nose.  Palate is velvety, with spice and ginger. 
Pure alcohol, maybe a 50/50 mix of Isopropyl and sterno, stored in musty wood.  
This was a great find.  Creamy with lemon zest.  Alcohol is strong, but mixes with the other flavors well.  Even after a night of tasting this held up.   

n: wood lacquer, green apples, nutmeg, and corn syrup.


t: very sweet with orange peel and heavy on the all-spice. Very dense mouthfeel. Warm honey and cotton candy at the state fair sweetness. Wax and ginger candy in the finish.


Much softer and creamy sweet with water.
