355mL 2008 ed.
A- A midnight black, motoroil pour yields a thin, dark, brown head. Spotty lacing sticks to the snifter.
N- Very nice: dark chocolate ganache, plums, dates, spiced rum, vanilla extract.
T- Intense milk chocolate, cocoa, mellowed out roast and heavy coffee. Bourbon, oak, vanillin are muted and soft.
P- Rich, oily, soft, ending fairly dry.
355mL 2009 ed.
A- Head formation is still not spectacular. Weak lace.
N- Soft butterscotch, buttery bourbon quickly devolve into rubbing alcohol.
T- Soft up front with rich bourbon and coconut oil. Moves in the mid and finish to tannic oak, drying chalk, sort of like over oaked red wine.
P- Silky for a moment but ends chalky and dry.
Definitely inferior to the '08 batch.
