Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 53 in November 2016

Garrett  •   •  3.5

Scents of robitussin. Burnt caramel. Apple cider. Washes my mouth out with soap. Slices tongue. It may sound like I hate this, but it's really delicious. Enjoyable, probably in a cocktail with vermouth.

Elliott  •   •  3.0

Dusty but alluring nose. Fruit salad perfume. So light and delicate, but I wish it was fuller on the palate. Agree with Todd that this is a bit of a letdown. Did anyone say apple?

Scot O.  •   •  3.0

Interesting. Good, a little sulfery, really weird finish, almost dirty. Like dirt. Kinda disappointed for what I would expect the price point.

Todd W.  •   •  3.0

Beautiful apple nose and floral beginning. But I'm slightly disappointed by the slight porcini mushroom finish.

Gavin  •   •  2.5

Disconcordence; a perculiar onionlike finish.

Greg  •   •  2.5

Sweet, harsh, hot, astringent, thin, quickly turning bitter and dry; faint notes of chamomile on the short, flat finish.

Laura  •   •  2.0

Smells like apple jolly rancher. Starts softly and finishes with soap and garlic and falls off quickly.

Darren  •   •  1.0

Super light on the tip of the tongue but then quickly grows bitter and unpleasant. The handsome bottle and 21 yr age statement are beguiling. Best for use as a practical joke.
