Batch #75. 12oz bottled poured into a snifter.
A: Super dark with a tan, one-finger head; dark amber at the rim of the glass. (Side note: label artwork is really neat).
S: Intense bourbon aroma dominates; there's a faint but detectable pepper scent, maybe from the fenugreek; strong candied toffee sweetness. Very inviting and somewhat reminiscent of BCBS.
T: Bourbon dominates on the front end, then gives way to toffee and dark red fruits; that's followed by some rich maltiness you might expect from a regular wee heavy; again, some light pepper or fenugreek flavor; heavy vanilla on the aftertaste.
M: Smooth and creamy; on the lighter/thinner side of the spectrum, but not in a bad way.
O: Outstanding. Great barrel character, great dark fruit and maltiness, and great spiciness (or whatever you want to call it) from the fenugreek. Not sure how faithful this BA version is to the wee heavy style, but why bother about that when it tastes so good?
