Member Ratings and Notes
N: Vinegar and ripe fruit initially.  If you search deeper you might find a little peat, honey, and caramel but its heavily masked by this kinda unpleasant salad dressing thing going on.
P: Light peat mixed with a peculiar fruitiness, the nose plays a big role in this and brings down the overall experience.
F: It just finishes.
Whatever malt makes up the bulk of this was a poor choice.   This is distinctly crappy and not enjoyable.   This will be donated the club reserves!! 
Nose is malty, and mainly smells like cheap vodka poured over a bowl of mixed cereal.  Palate is basically what you'd expect from the nose, though the cheap vodka is thankfully not too overwhelming.  Malt lingers in the finish, but so does alcoholic trash.  This isn't terrible, just not very drinkable.  Does that make sense?  (Note to The Duke: the club... thanks you???). 

n: New spirit.


p:  Urine strained through an old sock.
