Member Ratings and Notes

n:  Nice.  Wet polyeurethane in a walk-in humidor.

 

p:  Chewy and delicious.  Lots of fresh leather.  Slight thinness and non-complex finish are the only (small) flaws.

The nose shows its age. It's mellow and balanced.  Starts with brine from the ocean breeze, warm honey covered toast and dried fruit.  The wood influence is very nice. Gentle smoke lingers. All these thing transfer onto The palate. There are layers of flavors here. Sweet and salty (caramel sea salt).  Finish drops a bit early.  But it's excellent.  B+/A-
