Member Ratings and Notes

Nose:  Smells like gin, botanical with juniper notes.

Palate:  Raw and woody.  Very typical of young craft whiskeys aged in small barrels, lots of fresh wood, some wood and spice notes and a lot of that gin/juniper.  

Finish:  Fresh wood and spice.


I love craft distillers. They're a rare breed that requires a combination of passion, science, art, entrepreneurship, and a little craziness. What they are about to do for the American whiskey scene is fantastic... presuming enough of these guys stay afloat long enough for it to happen.
That's why I always hesitate to post a not-great review for new craft distillers. Especially for this product, which shows a lot of promise.
Alas, it's my enjoyment of the product that's being discussed here, so... it's hard to drink a lot of.
The nose is young, thin, pine and vanilla. Hints of clove and cedar. New make scents, but not off-putting like they often can be. Palate is nice, and pretty tasty initially. It's as advertised by the nose, and the newness is present but not bad...
...until after a couple minutes. Then it's very much just a young craft sprit that's hard to drink much of, but shows great potential. Spiritous, alcoholy flavors intensify in the finish in a way that's disagreeable and hard to return to.

n:  Well, that's new.  I'm not sure I know what to compare this to so I'll use my imagination:  an old boot dipped in discarded kodak chemicals.  You get where I'm going anyhow.


p: Wet hay bale, perhaps with a bit of mold growing within.  Decay.  Points for uniqueness I suppose but it's a taste you have to be prepared for.



Sandal wood, teak and varnish.  Weak and weird.
