My only complaint is that the vanilla at this point is pretty faded.

Wow--- talk about a creamy, chocolaty, bourbon-soaked marshmallow bomb.... Still powerful and youthful! Wish I could open one of my '14 vanilla's to compare but id be too ripped.... If you can find this, get it!!

Super boozy and intense vanilla flavor. Definitely needs a couple of years to age and mellow out these strong characteristics. Would love to try a 2 year old bottle in the future.

The vanilla is in the nose now, the bourbon has smoothed out, wrapping itself all over and the taste is marshmellow wood. Thank god I got to have this.

Fantastic, but the vanilla was almost nonexistant compared to Rye.
