750mL bottle, pours a dark amber / brown with a small beige head. Aroma of red berries, floral notes and a slight sourness. Flavour of red berries, slightly sour fruits, and overall much more muted and less complex than the brandy barrel version.

Draught, 8.0%. Very vinous aroma, sweet fruit, hint of spicy vanilla. Cloudy dark red amber colour. The flavour is sweet and spicy, probably from the fruit, figs, that is. Sweet, but balanaced by a good citric flavour that must come from the Bourbon barrel, even though I think it tastes like red wine barrel. Good citric finish. bhensonb (15098) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2010
