2006 GTMW. This is "Bourbon Barrel-Aged 2004 Peated Wee Heavy", but pretty sure its the same batch, based on newsletters from Tyranena. Coppery scotch colored body. White soapy head. Peaty aroma. Sweet fruity scotch. Very well melded BA peat and malt. Nicely aged.

2004. 6th Anniversary.
Cloudy brown color whispy tan head nice lacing. Smells big bourbon notes light touches of vanilla a light carmel malt some light oaky notes. Palate is lightly creamy full bodied. Flavor is a big bourbon front an alcoholic finish with a light smoked malt and hints of vanilla. Very dominated by bourbon but very good.

The barrel aged 2004 Wee Heavy. Bright light copper color with a small beige head. Aromas of bourbon seem to dominate the nose with a touch of caramel sweetness. Bourbon hits the tongue from the start and continues through near to the end. The bourbon even seem to thin this one out. The bourbon really seem to have taken over this one. If I didn’t like bourbon this one would not travel far, but as I do enjoy a good nip once and a while this has some staying power with me. As I stated earlier, the scotch ale seems to be no match for the bourbon, but it does work in my book.
