Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 32 in January 2015

Keith  •   •  5.0

Nose: Rose hips, strawberry, like the sugary milk left over in your bowl of corn pops. I COULDN'T STOP SMELLING IT. Palate: Curvy and supple with a simmering warmth.

Greg  •   •  4.0

Powerful bite of alcohol, followed by a wave of spicy fruit and sweetness, easing into a long very slow fade of zesty spice.

Justin  •   •  4.0

More rubber cement aromas. Sharp tongue! Sticks around on your upper lip! Sweet candy with a kick.

Kevin  •   •  4.0

A bit more lively on the nose than the previous three--bay rhum, allspice, tea. Light bodied in spite of the nose; leathery whiskey notes on the palate, followed by a hit of cherry minty spice from the nose also on the finish.

Donald  •   •  3.5

Very fruity with a nice bite to it! A little on the bold side. It leaves a creaminess in your mouth and wanting for more.

Dennis  •   •  2.5

Nail polish nose. Bright and Spicey first sip - wood sap lingering sweetness.

John  • 

Almond nose! Marzipan, grape, band-aid flambe!
