Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 48 in June 2016

Tim  •   •  4.5

Sherry, toffee and leather followed by cinnamon and the faintest hint of cardamon. Fruit and sweetness sugar, chestnuts and raisins, mixed spice, nutmeg and caramel lingering for long after the final sip.

Todd H.  •   •  4.5

Salt guava, bananas, clean sheets, and pineapple on the nose. So sweet and salty.

Brian R.  •   •  4.0

Musty, light, crisp nose. Good full body up front. Chocolate, sea salt caramel flavor. Savory and deep,really nice drinkable and interesting.

Gavin  •   •  4.0

Grassey green color. Brilliant fresh scent, alluring, Ardbeg 10ish. You say it's not peated... But come on. Light orange oak beauty.

Garrett  •   •  4.0

Tobacco after taste. Dry soda of scotch. Light smoke, more so than other "unpeated" varieties. Light pinch on the tongue.

Brad  •   •  3.5

Light salt and toffee on the nose. Sugar and oak on the tongue with walnut bread -- almost Nutella.

Elliott  •   •  3.5

This is delicious creme brûlée or low-down Jello vanilla pudding. Light and oily but fine and light a silk suit.

David S.  •   •  3.5

Sweet nose followed by just the bare essence of peat. Complex throughout with a balanced and lasting finish.

Chris  •   •  3.5

Buttery finish A little bit of peat in it Tangy
