Tons of Dark fruit, very little barrel. I prefer the regular version to the BA variant.

Straight caramel, vanilla, toasted oak and toffee. Getting a hint of cinnamon. Thick. A little bit one noted, but it was a delicious one note.

Pours a dark brown color with lightly tan colored head. Bourbon, caramel, vanilla, oak, and some dark fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with sweetness, and a bourbon warmth. Very complex.
