3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at a tasting. It poured an almost clear dark brown liquid. Boozey smell with whisy and sweet caramell malts, also some wood and other aromas. Very sweet taste but besides that similar to the smell but milder. Long aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very cloudy reddish brown with a medium tall, frothy head. Aroma is smoke, coal, burning logs, oak cask and islay whisky. Taste is something else entirely...! Sweet initially, and only getting sweeter, but with a burnt and very smoke heavy backbone. The sweetness lingers heavily on the tounge and dominates a bit too much. It’s port and madeira, not beer. Body is surprisingly light (really medium) with low carbonation and a somewhat oily, sticky texture.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, pours dark brown/black with small white head. Aroma is smoky, bacon, some leather, roasted nuts and some bourbon notes. Very nice aroma, much like the un-barreled version. Taste is smoke, some tar, ash, bacon but most of all a strange sourness that ruins everything.
Awesome smell but terrible taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark mahogany, with a beige head.
Smoky, malty aroma, caramel, oak, peat, leather, walnuts, iodine, licorice, vanilla.
Off-dry, full bodied, medium bitterness, low CO2.
Smoky, quite sour taste (from the barrel ageing), malt, caramel, fudge, peat, oak, vanilla, marzipan. Odd, but quite good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Muddy deep brown liquid with minimal off-white head. Aroma is smokey with notes of peat, toffee, oak, sausage, caramel and light vinegar. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter and light sour with vinegar and peat. Feels like a smoked oud bruin or something similar. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Weird and interesting, quite good but not accurate to style at all.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sublime juxtaposition of sweet bourbon and dark malt and heavy smokiness. Well rounded and full body. Missing a ’wow’ factor, but still well crafted and very drinkable for such a big ABV.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours murky brown. The Bourbon really flattens out the the peat. There’s a tangy lemony edge in there. Pretty nasty. A real let down and much worse than the original.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at Craig’s. Brown with short lasting head. Smells like an oak aged sour, quite funky, smells a bit of sweat and cheesy feet, hint of smoke. Taste has smoke, caramel, fruits. Sweet with a sour finish. Not right
