Peggy Noe Stevens – 7.5 

Nose: Maple syrup and light vanilla. Green tea and herbal essence. Ginger ale and grassy notes with soft fruits of green pear and apricot.

Palate: Coffee flavors with an oak outlay. Hints of chocolate and toffee.  Green apple with sprinkled light baking spice. Honey and oats.

Finish: Some bright citrus and light brown sugar engage and complete the oak finish.

Comment: Surprises from the nose to the finish, a chameleon.

Susan Reigler – 7.5 

Nose: Light caramel and very nutty. Some floral notes emerge. But the caramel and nuts do not retreat. A little sweet oak, too. 

Palate: Sweet corn, with vanilla, caramel and nuts, along with a bit of tobacco. Very little, if any, fruit on the palate and the floral note on the nose has vanished.  

Finish: Long and peppery. Dry oak persists for a long time.

Comment: Water sweetens this whiskey and tames the pepper, but still no discernible fruit here.
