Member Ratings and Notes
Sweet and easy, simple but yummy.  Too much heat in the finish. 
My favorite in this series.  The sweetness is sugary, not winey like the others.  I really like what they did with this.  I do recommend this. 
Nose:  sweet honey and liqueur notes with a malty background.
Palate:  Very sweet and syrupy with a good malty back note that develop into a malty finish.

Nice and drinkable, if a bit too sweet for my tastes. 
I thought it had lots of very sweet white wine notes on the nose.  Peaches and nectarines with tea on the palate and a light honey sweet finish.  Nothing offensive about this malt but I struggled to finish the bottle.  

n: golden plump raisins, doughy cinnamon rolls with thick white frosting. Sundried linens in summer. Vanilla and orange candle wax.


t: the vanilla and orange frosting sweetness is the main flavour. A lot of golden grape juice and ripe peaches, the cask finish has a lot of influence here. This is quite sweet and doesn't have a ton of complexity but it is quite tasty and nice for what it does. This is dense and sweet with just enough oak to round it out and deliver a little complexity. My second favourite in the series.  [B/B+]


n:  Faint.  Honeysuckle and tin


p: Generic sweetness over new wood.  Hotter than expected.  Easy drinking though.
