Well, I've had some now over the last couple of months, and I'm reviewing an 08 version. Had younger ones, but time is on the side of this drink, so I'll keep off the younger versions and stick to the aged ones. 3 years old and the bourbon mellowed down perfectly into a balanced stout, very good example of its style. Only hints of how boozy this one once was. So preferably drink aged versions is my best advice for this one
