2014 Vintage bottle into snifter.

Been waiting for this one chasing it for a while. Looks great. Mocha head, quickly fades into tan ring. Smells like chocolate bourbon. Tastes like it smells, so smooth slight vanilla, but o' coffee as well. As good as BCBS???? I don't know
Worth the wait. Glad I've got a couple more bottles.
