Tap at the Schoolhouse. Pitch black, glowing, with what might be the most beautiful head I have ever seen. Nose of fruit, berries, coffee, chocolate, wood. Sweet berry and chocolate flavor, then coffee, wood, burnt malt, fabulous. Barrel comes through, but not whiskey specifically.

Pitch black.....duh! Woody musty earthy peat barrel nose. Very light whiskey in aroma and flavor. Little or no berry detected. Dusty chocolate finish that sticks to your tongue. Small alcohol burn going down. The 13% brings an overwhelming dryness to the palate. Pretty thin. Pretty good but without the barrel I wouldn’t care for it.
