3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour, good sized mocha head. Huge bourbon and vanilla aroma. Barrel is at the forefront here, whiskey and wood up front. Vanilla sweetness more prominent as this warms. Heavier body, but currently something of a barrel bomb. For those that like a bit of beer in their whiskey.
