look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a hint of transparency. Nice khaki head. Leggy. Some bubbles cling to the glass.

Smell - Really nice bourbon and oak. Some coconut and vanilla. Rich dark chocolate.

Taste - Bourbon is a little more raw. More liquor than barrel. Oak. Dark chocolate. Kinda dry.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Could be richer. A little boozy, but not that much.

Overall - Something hidden, something apparent, all good. A very strong bourbon character. Works well. Smells fantastic.
