Bottle shared with me by AKfaust: Wow he poured this with a strainer and it was amazing to see all the chunks of fruit/unknown chunks that would have been in my glass. The actual glass was filled with murky brown meets burgundy, the head was white. Aroma is strong mixed fruits with vanilla. Taste is sweet aged peach and cherry fruit with bourbon vanilla clinging to it.
