This is silky smooth with a complex nose and medium bodied flavor that hangs on long after each swallow. One can definitely detect the bourbon as well as a hint of honey. By my standards, this was pricy but worth it. Forced to write more in order to post. So, there is also a hint of an English ale - like Old Speckled Hen, but only a hint.

Glowing honey gold with a healthy finger of soapy whiteness on top that retains for a few minutes before forming a neat collar. Body is mildly active.
Wow... never smelled anything like this before. Vanilla, toffee, clove, leather, cookies, a bit of heat if you really snort for it, mushy grapes and figs. Smells darker than it looks... raisins... pineapple? All over the place.
Musty oak with a sweet bourbon that envelopes an otherwise clean tripel profile. There's that wheaty yeast and cereal malt that you might find in Chimay white or Karmeliat but then there's this mellow bourbon barrel contribution that really transforms this into something unique.
