dagimp (936) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle is a good 2+ years old. From a corked n caged 750 into a snifter. Pours a moderate brown with no head or lacing. Sweeeeeet aroma with booze. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky. Very low carbonation. Taste is some bourbon with oak, mild booze, brown sugar, cinnamon, etc. Pretty good. Probaby should have drank last year. Solid but slightly oxidized by now. If Victory makes another batch, which Iím guessing they will, Iíl pick up another bottle.
