The time has come, and I finally got this in the mail today. Wasted no time to put in the cellar. Opened at cellar temp tonight into an unbranded snifter.

A: A vigorous pour yields a one finger mocha head. Rather creamy, though it does not last. Around the edges are apparent brown and mahogany, but in the center - a clear black.

S: Decadent, really. The first thing I catch is the sweetness. Very sweet chocolate, coupled with sweet bourbon and vanilla. The bourbon is very present. Sweet vanilla and caramel coupled with toffee. Smells of tiramisu.

T: The taste rivals the smell, but brings an ashy, more roasty flavor. The bourbon is huge. In that, huge vanilla, huge caramel, and some heat. Kind of airy on the palate. Sweet chocolate with slight hints of dark fruits.

Overall, awesome. This will undoubtedly blend together and mellow in a few months.
