3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose of dark fruits, cola, a good deal of sweetness - fruit cake perhaps, some nutty notes, a hint of oak and whiskey as it warms, but very faint. Pours dark brown with reddish hues, I guess it could be called auburn, no head or lace. The flavor has notes of dark fruit, fruit cake, cola, a hint of oak, light whiskey. Whiskey and oak are not assertive and really show up when it warms. Somewhat thinned out from oak, not as thick as the regular version. Light alcohol notes in the finish. Its okay.
