Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 30 in November 2014

Greg  •   •  4.5

Harmonious.

Garrett  •   •  3.5

Excitement before - stability during - controlled after taste. Noteworthy for its durability, not explosive, but that's ok. Solid selection for my favorite armchair and a movie.

Darren  •   •  3.0

Light vanilla on nose. Sweet grassy start. Totally blank for 2-3 seconds then opens up in the mouth on exhale - soft sugary taste with very light peat essence. I did taste the sherry.

Tim  •   •  2.5

Cinnamon, spicy. Almost astringent. A little brown sugar. Strong nose.

Keith  •   •  2.0

Nose: ethanol. Palate: white lightning, sharp... stabs you in the throat. Finish: meh.
