Way to sweet and rich for my liking... Some things are just 'too good' to be true. Super, super sweet and so danm malty it's almost like chewing on tar. The malty sweetness is far too over the top for me to ever pay the price on this again~

Opened a 2012. The cherry is strong with this one. Tasted like a plum and cherry that have been soaked in alcohol. Very good and smooth.
