Tim Knittel’s tasting notes:
Nose: Strong yet delicate sweet.
Palate: Light yet intense flavors of dry wood and dry grain. Leathery mouthfeel.
Finish: Lengthy “Woodshop” with more dry wood, smoke and char, dry tannins without substantial bitterness.

Hilary Baumann’s tasting notes:
Very distinctly Worther’s candy smell.
Palate & finish: light and oaky with a very lengthy finish for 90 proof. Smooth.
