mrjez (554) - Osaka, JAPAN - JAN 22, 2017
2015 bottle shared at CBB. Pours a full black, viscous. Gentle chocolate and roast aroma, not so much barrel. Wonderfully well-balanced, some chocolate sweetness with oats, vanilla, coffee, low bourbon flavour but providing warmth. Nothing leaps out, but work towards a singular full flavour. Hides the ABV dangerously well. So smooth, the oats glide it over the palate.
