Panama City, FL - Chan’s Wine World (Thanks to the wife for bringing to me!) - 22 oz bomber. Dark cola pour with a sticky off-white head that leaves a fair bit of lacing. Decadent aroma with traces of bourbon, dates and molasses. Bold flavor, bourbon makes a bold opening statement and lingers in the back ground throughout. Dates, molasses, a hint of vanilla all blend together nicely. Mouthefeel is thick and smooth. Usually not a big BA fan, but this one sits just right. Helps that it is high quality bourbon that was in the barrels. The bourbon compliments rather than distracts in this one.
