reinmogard (2) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2016 does not count
Aroma is out of this world. Not sure if I want to drink, or just sniff. Intoxicating aroma. Very prominent bourbon barrel influence and tobacco. I thought 2015 was good, the 2016 edition is out of this world. Enjoy it if you can get it.
