2012 vintage bottle poured into a Founders snifter
The first thing I notice when I poured this into the glass is how dark it is, not quite what I was expecting. I held the glass to the light and it almost has a ruby color. Very nice.
The smell on this is just straight up sexy. I get a little bit of the vanilla, but I smell the bourbon. It's not overpowering at all. It's light and beautiful.
The taste is wonderful, but not as good as the smell. I get the vanilla, some oak, and toasted something in the after taste. I don't know what is toasted that I taste, but its good. The bourbon also plays a big role in taste as well.
This is a beer that I can enjoy all winter long. It's a drink that I can sit with by a nice roaring fire while watching hockey or football. I can even see drinking this with some buddies while bullshitting about life.
All in all I wish my bottle shop would have more than a one bottle limit. Guess I'm gonna have to road trip it for some more.
