Bottle sampled at the grand tasting, RBSG 2014. 2013 vintage. Pours a semi-cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Notes of vanilla, cherry, oak, caramel, brown sugar, and toast. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Pretty good, but not as good as other barrel aged TH offerings.
