Member Ratings and Notes
N: Sherry with a slight whiff of poo.
P: Big sherry, almost manages to cover up the sulfur.
F: More of the same.
Not dreadful, but the sulfur note brings it down into the "not recommended" category.

n:  Old metal.  Like rusty machinery.  Unripe plum.


p:  Doesn't suck for 1/3 or a second.  Bitter sherry.  Then the finish just takes it to a bad place.  Burning toffee.  Burnt something and it won't go away.

N: Caramel, brown sugar, simple syrup and light fruity notes.  The oak shows nicely with wine-y undertones but there are some rusty metal notes.

P: Oily mouth feel with much of the above and some smokiness.  Starts off nicely but it gets bitter and funky toward mid palate to finish.
