3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- Bourbon, dark fruit, caramel, nice oak character, and some chocolate. Second pour brought out some light tropical fruit and pine.
Taste- Plum, caramel, and other dark fruits up front, followed by a wave of tropical fruit over a nice roasty backbone. Smokiness comes in toward the end with some light notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and pine. Ever so slight bourbon on the finish with a nice little burn. Sometimes dark cherry shows up as well. Dark chocolate, roast, and some pine comes out in the aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle ans served in my Libby Thistle: Pours a handsome mahogany with ruby highlights and nice lacework. This rocks my world with caramel, toast, earthy minerals, oak, vanilla and light sweet Bourbon. Kick of smoke and char along the warming but dangerously smooth body. Some bright tasting dark fruits notes appear as well. Just splendid! I am really digging this one.
