Tap - @ RHP. Pours brown cola with scarlet highlights. No real head. Nose of grapes. Grapes! Taste is all whiskey, hints of grapes (!), red berries, slight chocolate. Lots of whiskey and fruit. Expectations breed disappointing results, but there is really no oak, no vanilla, and no real depth. Interesting and different. Finishes as you'd expect, thin and boozy. Waiting for the warmth to kick in... Still boozy. Still grapey.
