Mahogany colored pour with a small white head. Nose is intensely fruit forward with a strong prune character. Some raisin, grape, and dates, too. A fair amount of butter, unfortunately. A bit of cardboard, some water, a light tartness, and some wood. The flavor doesn’t show much of the barrel character. Some hints of wood, quite watery, and a lot of butter. Cardboard, a decent amount of dark fruit, light tartness, and some sweet caramel malt.
