Box showed up today with a few of these "babies" in it. Thanks Bill!

Pours a dark apricot with an inch of caramel head. Settles with some nice lacing.

Smell is a little one dimensional. Very malt heavy without much barrel presence.

Taste is better. There still a ton of malt flavor, but there's some oak, a little bourbon, and some sticky apricot, raisin on the back end.

Mouthfeel is smooth. Alcohol is present, and there's some burn going down.

Probably needs a little time. Maybe a little more barrel. First is possible, second probably not so much. Glad to have a couple more to settle down for a minute.
