4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle provided by Ed Roberts, you rock my friend. The aroma on this was pretty overwhelming. A lot of bourbon and hotness going on here. It smells a lot stronger then it actually this. The flavor is a mix between bourbon, malts and vanilla. Hangs very long on the palate. Could use some aging but still very good.
