  • Intro:

    This is a yearly LE product from Stranahan's. This particular release is finished in a variety of wine casks. This particular release is also named after Mt. Evans. It was released in 2016.

  • Nose:

    Holy balls. There's an initial overload of corn, followed by the gentle entrance of brown sugar. Lots of brown sugar. This blends nicely with finer notes of vanilla and molasses.

  • Taste:

    It tastes a bit different than I expected from the nose. Lots of cinnamon to begin with and then the old usual suspects creep in like I thought they might. Vanilla, followed by brown sugar. Its warm, sweet and coats nicely for the proof. There's some faint stewed fruits, honey, clove.

  • Finish:

    The finish is long and complex, leaving behind some smooth molasses and spice. I love it.

  • Overall:

    Overall, I really enjoyed this dram. It was certainly unique, but Ill be interested to try other Snowflake releases also.

  • Score:

    6
