Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 41 in October 2015

Elliott  •   •  4.5

Floral and light custard nose in a sherry wrapper. Powerhouse on the palate. Bold and fiery but so maintainable. Add a drop of water and it melts and becomes beautiful.

John  •   •  4.0

My palate articulator is asleep! A few drops of water tames it to a pleasant and slightly fiery but balanced spirit..

Tim  •   •  3.5

Scents of almond, nutmeg. I like it best with a drop of water.

Todd W.  •   •  3.5

Airplane glue (you know you like it) nose. Big first impression lingering into nuttiness.
