2012 vintage. Pours a deep dark thick black brown with a small brown head. Aroma is a rich dark roasted chocolate malt, dark dried fruit of raisins plums, has strong sweet bourbon barrel alcohol essence with some wood barrel undertones. Taste is a sweet rich dark bourbon alcohol flavor with a bit woodsy notes, some chocolate and dark fruit raisin, plums, some vanilla notes, roasted malt and bitterness on the end. Palate is a full rich creamy viscous body, leaves a bit of an oily resin mouth feel, but smooth going down. Seems a bit heavy on the bourbon though, a bit overpowering on the alcohol. Leaves a long lingering flavorful sweet bourbon alcohol flavor and a bit of woodsy vanilla notes on the end. This is definitely one to sip and share on a cold winter eve.
