Member Ratings and Notes
Dan
 
My favorite of the 2013 BTAC. The nose is delightful and suprisingly grassy and fresh, with spring water and other prarie like elements. The palate is what I expected -- vanilla, caramel, candy and everything nice. The finish is spectacular. A-/A [11/24/2013]
Fuji
 

Noses of young cherry, hickory, lacquer and paint varnish.  Some of that comes through on the palate with dark licorice and black pepper.  Nice lingering mentholated finish.

Ries
 

n: buttery brown sugar; like a green apple pie before it goes into the oven. Caramel, soft honey, fresh baked wheat bread. Sense of old wood and nostalgia.

 

t: This is so delicious and good that it's hard to take notes. I am amazed that it's so easy to drink at such a fantastic high ABV. Middle is where the sweetness comes in, but also a tart yellow cherry shows. Finish lasts forever and has hints of red cinnamon candy, caramel popcorn balls, and vanilla chews. Great booze!
