Hazy amber-brown color, with small head. Candyish aroma, bubblegum, alcohol, grape spirit (grappa?), light banana. Soft mouthfeel, caramel flavor, nice oak and marshmallow feeling, hint of mint and chili pepper; correct bitterness; moderate sweetness.
Nice but not impressive.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out tons of bourbon barrels upfront, followed by booze, banana, and candied dark fruits. Flavour reveals rock candy, banana and bourbon upfront, followed by caramel and an alcohol burn. Really cohesive and well-put together. Excellent stuff.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle from Wine & Cheese. Pours medium ruddy with a slight head. Aroma is definitely bourbon. Med body. Flavor is bourbon treacle candy. It finishes a bit oakily astringent. Very nice. More brandy would be nice.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours reddish amber with a tiny off-white head and a treacle and bourbon aroma. There is a sweet malty flavor with a pronounced bourbon finish. The cognac can also be detected and leaves a warming sensation.
