Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 46 in April 2016

Jon C.  •   •  4.0

Vanilla, French oak, honeyed grass, raw cane

Jimmy  •   •  4.0

Smokey smell. Love the smell! Like standing in a barbecue that's grilling pancakes. Carcinogenic but addicting and hard to walk away.

Todd W.  •   •  4.0

The light color is deceptive given the oily molasses nose. The most perfect turpentine flavor. I prefer this unrefined style.

Darren  •   •  3.0

Grassy scent with some alcohol or chemical note (like hose water). Easy mouth feel and easy going down. Warm burn in the chest at the end and a sharp ting on the tongue. Second time around it smells incredibly like pancakes. Good ones!

Jason A.  •   •  3.0

Muted fruit up front with a peppery finish, almost like a tequila.

Chris  •   •  2.0

Spiked simple syrup. Buttery. Add soda water and an ice cube and you'd have a nice summer drink.
