Bottle at tasting. I was incredibly hung over at Four Roses distillery so whenever I see the name it brings about slight nauseousness. Nose is dark fruits and grains. Tastes of grains, chewy malt, figs, bourbon sweetness, light tobacco. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
light to medium brown color..slight head that dissipates..nose is pretty solid smells like black cherries that have been soaked in bourbon..figs also in the aroma..medium bodied with the barrel presence making itself known with also a slight nutmeg/vanilla combo rounded out with caramel..the lingering bourbon comes in on the end..not hot at all with a slightly sweet finish..smooth, refined I like the bourbon presence without such a high abv...bourbon doesn’t overpower but helps bring something different to another big bottle winner from EVO...solid..perhaps the best part of the whole experience is the bottle with the awesome darwinian monkey sucking down a bottle..the bottle is a keeper for sure
