Reviewed May 13, 2022 (edited May 14, 2022)
Nose- red apple skins, juicy golden delicious, not getting much else fruit. Taste-. Sweet. Zero smoke, more red apple skins and golden delicious juice. Finish- slightly tart at the end. I think it's reminding me so much of apples that it tastes like apple seeds, slight mustiness. Some heat and spice, more than 44% would expect. It's numbing the inside of my mouth. Some almonds or nut in the finish. Overall it's good but I'm not seeing it's value. It's rare and I am excited to check a black art off but I'd take a port Charlotte over this personally at a 1/10th the cost. It did get better in the glass. Maybe I needed to let it sit longer.
