2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a creamy dark brown head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has a good amount of musty coffee and musty dark grains with a bit of underlying bourbon. Flavor has sweet but musty dark grains with underlying bourbon and a decent amount of wet coffee backing. Mouth feel is a bit odd.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from deyholla, thanks! Pours ark mahogany... Pretty close to black. Nose is bourbon burn, rich malts and syrup molasses. Taste is pretty odd; very rich syrupy malts, bourbon and a good amount of coffee. Not bad but a bit cloying- no more than one sniffer’s worth please

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 2 (flat batch). pour us jet black with no head even with a vigorous pour. The nose is very nice, rich chocolate cake with a strong bourbon note and lightly scorched barrel. Taste has all the chocolate cake, dry chocolate through the finish, faint bourbon much less than the nose, virtually no carb with a burnt finish and a medium silky body.
