Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: really dark; like black cherries being boiled down with cloves and chocolate cake batter. Walnuts in a dense fig cake with an orange zest.

 

t: dark chocolate covered walnuts with vanilla nougat. Element of marzipan in the middle with a dense mouthfeel. This is semi-sweet (almost dry) with some varnish and tobacco. Dried red fruit in the long, oaky finish. The quality oloroso casks really served the whisky well. This is a nice bottle for the value and high ABV.

Fuji
 

N: Cheerios, anise, hibiscus tea, and a lot of tart citrus.

P: Metallic tinge with sour notes.  White grapes and apples.  There is some stale mustiness midpalate that carries into the finish.  Astringent thin texture.

F: Short finish. Roasted nuts and fudge.

Andy
 

n:  Peach tea.  Overripe (but not fermenting) white fruits.  Whipped honey.

 

p:  Full flavored and oily.  Fruity and a tad hot.  Less sweet that expected for a Farc but good nonetheless.  Best at first, then the finish strays a bit.
