Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 35 in April 2015
 •  4.5

Crazy the scent is reminiscent of a tomato plant or a pungent Mexican fruit stand. The taste barely resembles tequila and has a mellow acidic taste with a hint of dried cherry or prune. Even crazier, had a second pour and the smell and taste completely change…

Nose - cedar bark woody ~ earthy pleasant. Taste - Complex yet light in the mouth; malty roasted flavors. Finish - dry tobacco tones.

Nose is musty then caramel-y. Palate complex and woody with a hint of spice.

Don't let the musky barn smell fool you! It's robust and full flavored with hints of cedar, corn, and hay. A great drink for the end of the evening.

Dig this. Diverse but not complicated. Musty, great late night by the fire or on the beach. Wood. My kind of dessert.

Like laying down mulch on a rainy day.

Cedar bark up front on the nose, medicinal on the back end. earthy. Hard to pinpoint the mid-range. More complex - maybe too much? Like a Stravinsky composition -- I might Walk out on it.
