DCLawyer (2395) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Backlog. 2012 bottle ->mini snifter from Churchkey Vintage Vault event. Deep brown with small tan head. Cocoa, roasted malt, oak, bourbon. Very good. Tasted alongside the Eclipse: Elijah Craig 12 Year and found the Bernheim to be more smooth and polished, which is likely due to my preference for wheat-based bourbons.
