Finally. Thanks to a good trading partner for hooking me up with this.
Pours a viscous dark brown with a shortly lived beige head. Very similar to what you'd expect from this.
Smell is wonderful bourbon, some coffee, little bit of vanilla and just a hint of chocolate.
Taste is exactly what I was expecting and wanted. Regular Bourbon County with a kiss of vanilla. Absolutely wonderful. Got a little bit of char and sweetness that play wonderfully together. Unlike the Coffee version of Bourbon County, this offering brings the heat. The coffee version actually shocked me in how mellow and incredible easy drinking it was. This one you can feel and taste the burn from the high abv. That being said, I had no problem finishing the entire bomber by myself and enjoying every last drop of it.
Very happy to have tried this and would be curious to see how this ages.
