COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fergus Mor: the legendary king of Dal Riata was the founder of Scotland according to Medieval and Renaissance myth. Rulers of Scotland throughout its history have claimed descent from Fergus Mor. A fitting name for this, the first beer in the Campeador series, a barrel aged collaboration of Cigar City Brewing and Knightly Spirits. Fergus Mor is a blend of Big Sound Scotch Ale and Bolita Brown Ale, topped off with a wee bit of Imperial Stout and aged in a Buffalo Trace bourbon barrel. Limited release of 204 - 750ml bottles.

Poured from 750ml bottle that I had been hanging onto for a while. Pours cola brown with a bit of frothy head. Aroma is scotch ale with a hit of bourbon. Taste follows...reminds me of BA Big Sound with just a tinge of sourness in there. I was hoping for much more.

750ml Bottle #82/204. Pours murky brown with thin tan head. The nose is sweet bourbon, molasses, brown sugar and vanilla. The taste is much the same. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer. 4.1

750mL bottle, #202/204. Poured coppery-amber with a smoked beige head. The aroma picked up sweet bourbon and brandy plus nutty malts and vanilla.. warm barrel filled the nose.. loved it! The flavor found tangy oak and bourbon on the tip of the tongue, with sweet chocolate, nutty notes, and lesser toast behind.. sweet boozy notes, vanilla, and nutty malts on the long, warm finish. Medium-plus bodied with low carbonation.. just a tad too sweet, but otherwise delicious!

Bottle during RBWG 2013. Brown pour with a small khaki head. Rich BA aroma with tons of nuttiness, vanilla, wood, sweet caramels, and a touch of oxidation and apples perhaps. Flavor follows suit. Really glad to try it!

Dark brown pour small tan head soapy bubbles. A touch of cedar and tobacco was my first thought. Huge syrup sweetness lots of brown sugar. Well coated lightly sticky palate. Sweet brown sugars caramel a touch of dry wood in the finish. Very good warm finish great in small doses as the huge sweetness really ads up.

Bottle shared at RBWG thanks to drowland! Pours a dark reddish brown with thin off white head and light lacing. Aromas of dark fruits, roasted dark malt, light booze, vanilla, brown sugar, and nuts. Taste follows, like a bourbon barrel aged version of a nut brown, but a hint more booze and dark fruits. This is awesome, can’t believe I was able to try this.

750ml bottle opened at RBWG grand tasting, poured a dark brown color with aromas of dark fruits, malt, light booze, a touch of oxidation, and some light nuts. Flavors were riped dark fruits soaked with some booze. Light oxidation i aftertaste. Glad I was able to finally try one of my own personal whales. Thanks for letting me get some.
