Member Ratings and Notes
N: A humidor long empty of cigars, faint sherry, raisins.
P: Initially blank and then dry tea leaf.
F: More flavor emerges in the finish, mostly oak, but a flash of fruit makes things interesting. 
Nose is nectary -- honeydew -- with an interesting chemical note that reminds me of Silly String.  On the palate, whatever that chemical thing is, it's in here in an interesting way, along with a general sugary-ness and tart fruit notes revolving around apples.  Melons show up here too.  Some toffee and peanut brittle emerge as well.  Finish continues the theme.  B/B+
