4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle generously provided as a gift by Greg Fisch. Stoked to try this one. Thick oily appearance with light carbonation. Immediate aroma of dark chocolate, bourbon, cherry, vanilla. The flavor is pretty damn well balanced considering the outrageous alcohol content. Flavor a of rich coffee, chocolate, anise, licorice. Ends with warming alcohol heat, oak and bourbon. A lot better than I expected it to be.
