Member Ratings and Notes
N: Pencils and nail polish remover.
P: Slightly flowery then nothing.
F: None, just burns.
It's just blah.  Nothing going on. 
Kind of light with mild fruity notes.  Basically one note the whole way through, except some falling-apart in the finish. 
Very simple, one-note bourbon -- but a good note.  Kinda hot, rye-like, vanilla and oak, little sweetness.  But for $20 who would complain? 

Nose:  Some nice rye spice.

Palate:  Olives, a bit of rubber, some pepper and a good measure of oak, ending with some soapiness and a medicinal note.

Finish:  Fairly woody.


Some interesting funky flavors but it doesn't come together all that well. 


N: Light notes of caramel and white pepper. A slight undertone of celery root. Light cinnamon, a trace of brown sugar and nutmeg. Very low level vanilla, an element of the nose sits on the cusp of piney young rye and mere solvent. 


P: Light, a bit of vanilla. Some astringent wood. A bit of caramel. Faint orange and cinnamon.


F: Cinnamon up front with a bit of rye. Vanilla and citrus after, with white pepper asserting itself later on.


It lacks cohesiveness on the palate. The nose is pleasant enough aside from the funky earthy bitter note. Beyond that it's quite light and forgettable. Not bad, not particularly good. Very middle of the road. 

N: Warm butter, black cherry with prominent plastic notes
P:Waxy, bitter red apple skins, black pepper and rye spice
F: Sweet maple syrup finish. Medium length
