2014 vintage. First time drinking this FW variety.
Poured into my trusty Stone tulip glass.
Appearance: Rusty gold color. Minimal lacing and carb bubbles.
Smell: Wonderful oak, toffee, bourbon, vanilla. As it warms the aroma is even more pronounced and wonderful.
Taste: Amazingly smooth and mellow for a 12% sipper. Some sweetness is cut by the oak and alcohol. Amazing complexity of vanilla/toffee/buttery/cinnamon/bourbon/dark fruit.
Overall: Great brew and highly recommended. FW is my favorite when it comes to barrel aging and this one is superb. I have another bottle that I'm going to age for at least 6 months to make a comparison. Understand it's going away but hopefully will return someday!
