n: nice nose of peanut butter, red liquorish, spice, and red berry preserves. Caramel corn, dried tangerine, and musty oak.

 

t: bold with pears baked with cloves and dark charred oak. Oak in the middle and burnt caramel corn. Tannic finish with burnt strawberry and more caramel. I really like these releases, good stuff!

N: Maritime, with hints of salt and seaweed, fades to rubbing alcohol and fruitstripe gum.

P: Oily and mild, buttery lemon...

F: ...with a salty tang in the finish.

Not bad, but a bit of a starfish if you know what I mean.

The nose has oak, maple syrup, polished wood and caramel. The palate is old oaky bourbon with mint notes, cocoa, some Bay, lots going on leading to a big bourbony finish with lots of spice.

 

Great old Heaven Hill.

Nose of heavy BBQ smoke, complete with saucy smells, like molasses. Sherry, and the scent of that strawberry topping that people put on cheesecake.

 

Palate continues this theme in a really great contrast of sweetness vs. smoke. Sherry flavors, and chocolate covered candied cherries. Some gunpowdery scents emerge after time.

 

I like this a lot.

Nose of BBQ smoke, peat, nutty -- walnuts and pecans. Bit o' Honey. Palate hits with an initial citrusy-sweet aspect, quickly giving way to what the nose advertised, with some chocolate. A really great smokey number.

Nose of smoke and earth, mild. Pool water and something odd and a bit chemically, like the smell of Silly String. Palate is pretty watery, even accounting for 40% ABV, and that chemically thing is still here... I can't get into it too much because of that. 
Chris
 

N: Reminds me of the great 70's Ardbegs, auto garage filled with classic cars.

P: Perfect sweet peat, flawless.

F: Lingers long on sugary peat.

This is exactly the style I love in peated whisky, simple but delicous.

Expected smokey nose, with a peachy aspect that really stands out. Palate delivers that -- stone fruits, apples, and pears against a pretty "clean" and slightly medicinal smoke. I like this a lot.

n:  Vulcanized rubber, white pepper, mint.  Intense

 

p: Indsutrial rubber and raisins, yet evolves toward an intense spearmint with a chocolate covered cherry background.  Very chewy and the tail end of the finish (a long time later) goes cacao.

 

It's as if the craziest distiller at Corsair was off his meds that day.  A definite muscle dram so buckle up.
