Nose: Craft funk, wet cardboard, really musty. There’s some maple, some sweet vanilla and some mossy notes. Overall, it’s pretty rank.
Taste: Thin and sickly sweet. It’s musty, funky, young and loaded with new make notes. Astringent and loaded with those young wet cardboard craft notes.
Finish: Short with some heat. The finish is pretty gross, still loaded with musty new make notes.
Overall: I have to be transparent here – this bottle was a gift from a friend. It was a great act of generosity and I’m happy I got to try it and review it. But good lord, this is garbage in every sense of the word. I regret consuming as much of this bottle as I did in the hopes I would find some redeeming quality.
Thanks for reading!
