Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: soft aromas of clean linens, toasted rye bread with kosher dill pickles, and tart apple. Faint burnt caramel, caraway seeds, and dried pineapple.

 

t: tasty but very subtle in its flavours, this comes together nicely without being too sweet or having the usual harsh CR alcohol notes. Green apple, light brown sugar, and butterscotch hard candy in the middle. The finish is pleasing with more of the rye bread dough and restaurant-style black pepper.

Fuji
 

N: Juicy fruit gum, perfume, vanilla and donut glaze.

P: I hate to say it, but it's smooth. White pepper spice, light citrus with honey sweetness.  Neutral finish.

 

 

The finish really disappoints and ruined it.

Andy
 

n:  Airport restroom automatically dispensed handsoap.  Bazooka gum.

 

p:  More generic pink gum at first.  Then, well, it fades into oblivion with the faint flavor of raw grain doing a small wave goodbye.

 

Pretty good for a blend in a plastic bottle (not offensive at all) but probably something I will forget in 5 minutes. 

Ryan
 

N: Black Licorice, Apple Cider.

 

P: Caramel, Cayenne pepper, old carpet.

 

F: Bitter, dry, some wood comes through, it just fades in the wrong direction and the alcohol comes into play. I wish I could taste more Rye in this.. 

Sku
 

This has a nice nose with spicy rye notes and a touch of mint. On the palate it's minty with bubblegum but then quite bitter. The finish is spicy with some medicinal notes.

 

This one starts nicely but then turns bitter and flat.
