4.03/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Bottle (April 2012) poured into a tulip on 6/27/12.
Pour: Completely hazy reddish brown with barely any head.
Smell: Really get a ton of woody oak up front followed by cinnamon, clove. Some chewy raison in there
Taste: Spice keeps up front with some cinnamon, clove, vanilla. Raisons next. Oak rounds everything out.
Mouthfeel: Chewy but drinkable. Little bit of heat on the finish.
Overall: Really great. Not surprised that Better Half came out so well with this base. Would LOVE to see what regular bourbon barrel aging would do to this.
Serving type: bottle
