Member Ratings and Notes

Nose: Sweet, some bubble gum, I Like. Palate: Yummy, mouldy. Finish: Yum. Old closet. Overall: I like ok.


Update May '12: This popped onto the home page today as Fuji entered notes. I'd forgotten that most of our early tasting notes were intentionally terse and, well, less experienced. Yet I still feel basically the same way about this malt rating-wise. It's a solid B, not without flavor or character.

Odd, moldy/mossy, oily, very warm finish, strange.  
Taste: Mossy. Finish: Rank, woody.  
Smells like church wine. Floorboards, hot finish. 
Nose: Almost none. Slight peat, boozey. Moldy?  
Like bubble gum nose, Smooth, not complex. Very easy. Weird, mossy, unique finish. Slightly rank, like a brewery.  It tastes like Milwaukee smells. Strange but interesting, Kind of unpleasant but I don’t mind.  
I don't like this one. It is better w/ water, though. Tastes like the floormat underneath a busy bartender.  
Nose is clean. Bar floormats. Taste is mossy, garbagy. Finish is ferment like, moldy, damp basement.  

Ahh, the classic.  This is a step up from a blend but is a little dull and inoffensive in the same way.  Lightly sweet and delicate, then heads a little musty.  Sure, I'll drink it anytime.



N: Sweet caramel, fruits and spice.
P: Very fruity, apple juice and pears
F: Citrus peel

Its sweet with lots of fruits. Theres good body to it and a pleasant finish. I think an ice cube with this on a hot summer day would be very refreshing. Great value if you can find it in some stores under $45.


n: nice nose of golden honey, heather, creamy citrus, and malted notes.


t: clean and light; vanilla cream, sweet honey, floral citrus fruit. Not too complex, mostly floral. Nothing offensive, but nothing memorable - good intro single malt.
