Bottle at the casa. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, fresh oak, and caramel. Flavor is pretty spot on with nicely balanced bourbon and vanilla characteristics, amongst the oak and chocolate notes. Pours like all the other eclipse variants. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at 4 Hands. Black. Minimal tan head. An oaked vanilla woody aroma. It also has a softer side to the nose. First sip is of beans and huge malts. The wood is nice but not really smooth. Interesting and fungusy. Big chocolate malts. The bourbon is under all of that. I like it.
