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.

Most certainly worth the line in winter to have on draft. I thought this was amazing, however, the Mexican vanilla bean was a little too potent at this point in time. I'm aging a bottle with no doubt this will be a 5!
