Peggy Noe Stevens – 7.6 

Nose: Butterscotch and vanilla bean. Golden-brown sugar and pound cake. Sage and basil highlights framed with a crouton like toast.

Palate: Nestled in a gentle frame of Asian spice and oak streaks. Golden raisin and minty highlights. Ginger is accompanied by the repeat of butterscotch and cereal notes.

Finish: Some hints of the Asian spice that lingers and build complexity.

Comment: Aromas do not get too revved up, but the taste certainly delivers on its promise.

Susan Reigler – 7.7

Nose: Apple and other cereal grains. Overall light, but there are tiny hints of several flavor elements at play here.  

Palate: Quite malty. Tastes like a light-bodied Scotch, or perhaps Irish whiskey. Notes of baked apple with custard. 

Finish: Vanilla and fruit begin the finish, which lingers with notable warmth before drying to oak tannins and spice.

Comment: A sippable blended whiskey that benefits from an ice cube to release more of the apple notes.
