Member Ratings and Notes
The nose is malty/fruity with mild peat. The palate is rich with light peat, growing stronger as it goes down and trailing off into the finish with a touch of mint. This is a really nice one as well. 

n:  Something pungent at first whiff.  It's not bad, but there's a whiff of cheap cheap (think Toy District LA) chinese plastic packaging.


p: Faintly tanned leather or tweed.  Indiana Jones' office closet.  Toffee or weak molassas.  Pleasing enough but ultimately not one that will stick in my head.

Very pale white-yelow. Not liking this one. Hints of throw-up at first, which fall away. Spiced oak, some sherry actually. [2/28/15] 

n: salted plums, dark leather jacket, red berries. Richness with the peat in there to create a nice inviting nose.


t: follows the nose, but not as tasty as it smells. Dark toasted wheat bread with a light smear of honeybutter. Finish is a bit off with a sour note that quickly fades to oak.  [B-/C+]
