look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Can poured into a snifter.

First of all, this looks hilarious in a can. I mean this is a bourbon barrel quad, being poured from a damn twist off can. It looks like an energy drink. Well played Sun King??

Pour: Poured a murky, rusty brown with a half finger of light tan head. Head recedes to a rim and leaves no lacing. Some nice legs.

Smell: A warm bourbon caramel bite up front that evolves into raisins, figs, and overripe cherries. Lots of toffee sweetness. Some vanilla sneaks in on the end. This smells divine.

Taste: Big mellow bourbon and toffee sweetness up front, with more raisins and figs. Lots of sticky caramel, but this isn't no where close to being too sweet. Finishes with smooth bourbon toffee, figs, and a touch of lingering overripe cherry.

Mouthfeel: A bit splashy, but still an excellent sipper. Barely any heat, and I'm very pleased this isn't too sweet. Finishes with a lingering stickyness.

Overall: This was pretty fantastic. Seek out if you can. Well done Sun King.

Serving type: can
