2014 Vintage, poured into a snifter

A- pours a crystal clear amber-ruby color with a small fizzy white head that disappears almost instantaneously, leaving no trace of any head behind

S- big & boozy bourbon aroma dominates up front. Beyond the bourbon, notes of rum soaked raisins, sweet caramel malt, butter toffee, oaky vanilla, fig, maraschino cherry, licorice & caramelized brown sugar

T- lots of boozy barrel notes up front with big bourbon flavors mixing with oaky vanilla. Beyond the bourbon, note of dark fruits kick in with highlights of raisin & fig, along with dark cherries. Sweet caramel malt gives notes of molasses & toffee, the finish gives more oak, along with lingers of rye-like spice & licorice

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a big boozy warming finish

O- This was very good, it actually reminded me of a classic Manhattan cocktail. It's pretty hot at only a few months old, I may have to buy more of these to put away for a while
