Member Ratings and Notes

Nose:  pears

Palate:   Soapy, metallic, floral

Finish:  Floral, lavendar


Too soapy and too floral, not my favorite flavor profile.

Very floral and perfumey.  Theres licorice on the palate with a metallic finish.  Kinda plasticy and rusty. B-/C+ 
This is about what I'd expect from this series of Cadenhead bottlings (black label dumpies bottled circa 1990). They all seem to follow a profile that Chris likes to call "metallic lemon water."

I don't get so much lemon in here, but the dry finish may have metallic elements, and there's just not a lot here. At all. Vague remnants of the Glenfiddich profile. Interesting historically, not flavorful-ly. But I kinda like it a little.

Floral soap.
