Corn syrup, sweet vanilla, creamy clove, cinnamon. Really very corn heavy and it smells like a young spirit.
Mild and sweet. It's a bit hot, with lots of corn followed by nuances of vanilla and caramel.
Short, harsh. It grows astringent and hot. There's a bit of spiciest also, but I can't differentiate whether or not its spice or just the astringency blending in.
I like what they are doing here but it needs a great deal more work. It's young and it shows. I'm not losing hope though and I hope that in another year or two, maybe more, their own distillate shines in ways that surpass their scouted MGP barrels now. I'm giving this a Rank 4 - its good but there are flaws. I have to give SA a lot of credit though - they know what theyre doing and they know how to price their experiments. Retail for this is $35-$40 and it seems they have reasonable expectations that are in check.
