3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks for sharing wavers1! Pours like ink pitch black with no head but great legs. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, bourbon, coconut, oak, and yes, vanilla. Flavor is that of regular bourbon county, lots of chocolate/coffee/bourbon, dark fruit flavor with you guessed it, vanilla. Was a bit hot. I think I prefer the original, but I’m holding out for rare.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours black wih a beige head. Smells of almonds and bourbon. Super-over-sweet lots of cocoa and lakridskonfekt aromas. So sweet it makes it cloying and slightly nauseating. The good thing: Bourbon aromas. Also lots of candy aromas. Full to heavy bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Long very sweet finish. Unbalanced. DNF

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
There was no head at all, deep mahogany to black in color, thick and viscous. The aroma is filled with molasses, raisins, bourbon, wood, vanilla, and alcohol. The taste is filled with wood, bourbon, a strong french roasted coffee, and then some vanilla towards the end. In the mouth there is noticeable alcohol heat, clings to the palate. No need to over indulge this one it warms up in the glass nicely.
