[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ Schnapps snifter ][ 03.25.16 ]
hazy amber, thin cream ring dies fast. Caramel sweet nose, plenty of candy and lead oxidation. Sweet front palate is all caramel and bubble gum, ultra sweet mid palate rules undying through the end, more sugar and caramel richness in moderate palate, light alcohol booze.

neepsntatties (1763) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2016
Bottle from Gold Rush Liquors in ANC. Colour...dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose...massively boozy with dried dark fruits, booze soaked oak and spice. Palate...cloyingly sweet, but the dryness of the oak helps balance out the sugars. There’s some light bittering on the mid palate and then notes orange zest and Brooks prunes and zante currants. The finish is very long, quite boozy and raisiny.
