Peggy Noe Stevens 8.3

Nose: Interesting nose of cassis and dark brown sugar with an almost perfume-like rose petal. Some paprika speaks up along with candied ginger. Dig deep for the chocolate notes.

Palate: Rich vanilla and zesty cinnamon take the lead into a sweet flavor of dates and dark raisin. The oak barrel note sings at the end.

Finish: It is slow to fade. Crushed pecans to end.

Comments: Inviting and playful with the zesty cinnamon and paprika. Nice evolution to the crushed pecan.

Susan Reigler 8.2

Multigrain nose with cornbread and Chex mix. Ripe apples and sweet nuts which are nudged aside by vanilla custard.

Palate: Vanilla and citrus stemming from the grain, like porridge. There’s little here in the way of spices or tannins.

Finish: Here come the spices. Cinnamon, white pepper and light tannins make their appearance.

Comments: A very satisfying sipping whiskey. A drop of water releases more fruit, but be careful with ice, which might just ruin it.
