Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is like a jar of Planter's peanuts.  Caramel corn in the nose and palate.  There's rough edges a-plenty, but this is darn tasty for the price.  
The overly spirituous nose leaves something to be desired, but I truly enjoy the lingering taste of this brash youngster, just the right amount of wheat and sugar. 

n:  Wheaty and fresh
p:  nah, doesn't do it for me.  Little bit of paint thinner, then disappears fast, thankfully.


Retaste 9/27/14

n:  leather and old fruit

p:  Less sweet than expected with a bitter finish.  White bread.  Relatively decent for sipping



Nose: A nose that's heavy on the wood, vanilla, sesame tahini.


Palate: More of those sesame notes, honey, vanilla, sweet candy notes


Finish: sesame candies


Overall: Not bad.

[2010 bottling]


N: Smells a bit youngish initially; a bit thin. Caramel and orange come in, as do a light dusting of spices - some light cinnamon and a touch of clove. After a bit the "young" notes fade off, it settles more into an assortment of spices and has a gentle wood influence. 


P: Thick at entry, rich. Sweet but again has a slightly young taste to it initially. A touch of sourness. A little vanilla, some more caramel, maple syrup. Gentle chili-oil type heat. Some corn here and there. 
F: Almost has a slightly peanutty note at first. Gentle heat, kind of cinnamony, a little light touch of wood. Some caramel. 
The palate doesn't quite come together for me and the peanut lead on the finish reminds me a little too much of Jack Daniel's. The nose is a little bit better than the palate and a lot better than the finish. 
Medium gold color. I didn't get a lot on the nose, some delicate sugar and pine trees. The palate is somewhat foresty and has a little complexity to it. The finish isn't bad. 2012 bottling. [1/27/13]
