Bottle shared with Westmeister and EricTeusink. This one knocked me on my ass a bit even after splitting it 5 ways. Not sure how anyone would take this on themselves. Wood and vanilla aromas from the barrels. There is a lot going on in the flavor. A bit of booze at first that increases a bit as it warms. Lots of purple fruit and plum flavors. Chalky texture and milk chocolate flavors. Vanilla definitely coming through in the flavor as well. Finish has a bit of the bourbon sweetness and somewhat hot. Would love to try this again in about 3 years. Incredibly complex but all working together harmoniously without any one piece dominating.
