Thanks to Trenton Road Takeout for this. Finally some Parabola in the area. Poured into a snifter,midnight black not to crazy of a fluffy heading from a hard pour. It did leave some great globs of lacing though.
Smell was not what I anticipated. Although it did have some nice bourbon notes not huge but mostly of a heavier oak barrel aroma.
First sip again was a solid bourbon taste not overpowering but noticeable detected.Big oaky notes are more detectable like the nose and there is a heavy hop bitter kick towards the end. A kind of hot anise finish.
Mouth is tremendous. Super slick velvet texture. Excellent full body and not very thick and chewy for such a high ABV.
This is a damn good barrel aged version. Probably my favorite right now. Easily drinkable for such a high ABV at 12.5%.
