Peggy Noe Stevens – 8.5

Nose: Lush sherry nose that expresses huge overtures of sweetness and bonfire toffee.

Palate: Nice mouthfeel that speaks to cherry and a pleasing spine of wood sugars.  Bites of astringency that even out and reveal the underlayer of chipotle and juicy plum.

Finish: Sense of polish on the finish, long, sweet and dry.  Pipe smoke and baked crust.

Comments: Assertive personality and admirable texture, perfect for a chilly evening as well.

Susan Reigler – 8.2

Nose: Very floral. Light vanilla is accompanied by sweet maltiness, very much like that in a fine English ale. 

Palate: Prunes, figs, and dates. Vanilla is now burnt caramel and there’s an element of root beer flavor. Virtually no spice at all. 

Finish: Sweet oak tannins arrive at the finish, which dries nicely in the end. 

Comments: Mixture of flavors that make this whiskey atypical. Well worth a taste. It’s also warm without being at all hot.
