This is another one that was just consistent in all the five categories. Think "old"..."curmudgeon"....and "delicious". Founder's, as always, really nailed it with this one - the name and the five "senses" really matched up. Smell of biscuit, must, leather, sweat from the collar?...taste is just ....fantastic, very little sweetness that I prefer, but makes up for it with tangy, woody, bourbon-like feel. Not a heavy mouth, solid, but not heavy at all. For me, I didn't taste the alcohol at all, although the 9.8% indication made me hesitate to drink this at 5pm. Try it!!
