Poured on tap at Pizza Paradiso Dupont DC into a small snifter. From notes.
Super dark walnut black body, can't see even up to the collar head. Tan collar with thin bubbles and very opaque.
Classic bourbon barrel nose. Lost of soft vanilla, sweet caramel, and sense of oak depth. There is no heat coming off of this at all.
Palate hits with a wonderful thick caramel richness. Roast charring malts and oak complete the aftertaste. Vanilla washes all over the palate with good depth. Body is a little fizzy strangely, detracts from the flavor a bit, just a bit too much carbonation, but still allows everything to be enjoyable.
A solid RIS that took a barrel real well, this could be the start of something big. Possible future BCBS killer or just an easier one to drink?
