RickTheRick (364) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Brune impénétrable, un mince collet mousse ne fait que passer. Le bouquet est à la fois excessivement sucré et légèrement boisé. Le bourbon n’est pas tant présent en bouche, sauf peut-être une vague de chaleur qui enveloppe les gorgées. Bien ronde et sucrée, le chocolat et les fruits confits prennent d’assaut le palais. Des notes boisées, surtout en finale, sont également de la partie. Pas mal du tout.

Bottle. Rich bourbon aroma with notes of dark fruit and vanilla. Excellent start. Pours extremely dark caramel colored with a thin light brown head and decent lacing. Taste is sweet dark fruit with a hint of vanilla with a lively, highly carbonated mouthfeel. Finishes pretty smooth with a lot of bourbon flavor and a touch of booze. Wonderful.
