3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle RS purchase. Color is a mostly clear orange with a tiny ring of head. Aroma is a metric ton of pineapple with light cinnamon.
Flavor is a lot of pineapple, an array of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and Ginger)
I really don’t enjoy ginger root and I have that flavor here. The body is medium the a sweet fruity finish. The ABV is pretty well hidden of course I can only taste pineapple and spice. I’m about to compare right against the Bourbon Barrel version. I hope the BBA gives this a better complexity.

Very nice BSA that had all of the good characteristics of the style with a winter twinge to it and the good thing, no Cardamom! Pineapple balances the spice with a bit of acidic sweetness.
