    sample from a friend
    • Nose
      A little waxy smokiness, and clearly on the usual sweet barley in this
      sort of ex-bourbon expression. Honey and lemon. Also rather a bit of
      pear and banana, which starts out as very yellow, and turns into a
      beautiful bunch a'ripe banana. Toffee and caramelized popcorn, and then
      something a bit odd and vegetal. Green peppers and sea spray for the
      saltiness. Buttermilk. Dill and cotton candy. Nice. And vanilla, for
      obviouslies. Yes, I wrote that.
    • Taste
      Sweet, sugar-coated barley. Honey. Cool vanilla creaminess. Lemon zest
      and wax. It's nice, very to the point. Nothing left to say. Really. It's
      a simple, linear show. And now we're on to Act III.
    • Finish
      Wood comes out a bit from the wax, providing a touch of bitterness. A
      hint of the usual lemon zest, wax, and sweet maltiness. Less honey here.
      Lightly salted green vegetables way in the back of the finish. Very
      nice, especially if you want something easy that hits all the basic
      elements.
