Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 36 in May 2015

Gavin  •   •  4.0

Silky and rich. Exceptional texture. Move your tongue and get two flavors at the same time.

Elliott  •   •  4.0

Ooh this has a nice nose - subtle and seductive. Elegant and aged. Great texture. Silky but weighty. This is dark. brooding, and delicious.

Kevin  •   •  4.0

A lot less heat and spice than the Forged Oak. A strange medicinal alcohol note on the nose. Strangely floral on the back side. This whiskey is a lot more complex than the Forged Oak--spice and flowers more intertwined on the finish. More characteristically sweet for a bourbon.

Meru  •   •  3.5

Old schoolhouse smell, chalkboard, brown sugar, on the nose; crisp mouthfeel, cigar, dark chocolate, bitter/spice

Joel  •   •  3.0

Calm start with a spicy finish. Good complexity. Reminiscent of 4 Roses!

Greg  •   •  2.0

Nose - sweet marijuana smoke; taste - tutti fruity, sweet, mild finish; overall round + smooth, maple + brown sugar; clean + lean.

Jameson  •   •  2.0

Note - soft sweet syrup, bubble gum. Taste - complex, nice texture with fruity brown sugar, instant oatmeal. Finish - really sweet, wet flavor.
