nose
Simon – mild mash, “goldish” i guess, eggs, honey
Brad – very subtle, hint of alcohol, shaving cream, barbasol, but not much
Chris – delicious, butterscotch, caramel, faint
Junior – smells sweet, makes me think of pumpkin patch

neat
Simon – honey & burn, good but light, not much going on
Brad – top of the mouth, more of the ewok/peaty feel, what i imagine scotch tastes like
Chris – eyes water, strong caramel taste
Junior – smooth, feeling back of throat, can feel it in the mid chest, apples?

finish
Simon – excellent on breathing out, tongue a little scorched
Brad – not a burn but a residue in the back of the throat, i burped and liked it
Chris – abruptly ends, rough, sweet
Junior – doesn’t taste long for taste to clear, isn’t over-powering

splash
Simon – maple syrup smell but falls apart, very mild
Brad – definite enhance, rounder at the edges, warms me up
Chris – werther’s original
Junior – felt on tongue, honey taste a little bit

overall
Simon – 7/10
Brad – 8/10
Chris – 6/10
Junior – 6/10
