Honey and bourbon dominate this release. Very sweet and dessert forward, almost in the region of a fortified wine. Heavy maltiness - a warming heat comes through but does not overwhelm

Sweet and boozy with the barrels adding maple, vanilla, bourbon and coconut, making it one to enjoy over the course of an evening. Wish I had more.
