750mL bottle, crowned and corked. 2012 vintage, batch #2012-2, bottle #18665. A gift from a friend. Served cold in a standard pint glass.
A: Dark orange-tan brew, cloudy as hell. Short-lived 1/2" of head from a gentle pour settles to a thin layer across the surface. Appreciable viscosity observed during the pour.
S: Woooow, tons of bourbon in the aroma. Much more like bourbon than rye whiskey in my opinion, maybe because of the extra body/ sweetness. Not dry enough for a rye whiskey. Charred oak, mulling spices, smoke, cedar, citrus pith. Moderately sweet, some alcohol spice lingering behind the scenes.
T: Tastes just like the smell, no deception here. Very heavily influenced by the barrel aging. Tastes like it's made of half bourbon. Very potent and very tasty! Wow.
M: Moderately thick. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, though not completely. It quickly makes itself felt. Fairly well balanced in that regard. Finishes with a nice strong dose of lingering wood smoke/ charred oak.
D: An epic example of barrel aged brew. A must-have if you're in to this sort of thing, but probably quite overpowering if you're not. Finishing this bottle is going to screw me up in all sorts of nice ways. I usually gotta drink wine in order to get this kind of buzz from a single bottle. Gets the job done with class and style. I almost want to make a Manhattan with it.
