2012 bottle with a big thank you to Steasy66!
Appearance. Pours a viscous deep amber-orange with a thin off-white head.
Smell. Smooth bourbon and oaky vanilla, caramel, some dark and orchard fruits ...even a little citrus rind.
Taste. Burnt sugar, light bourbon and plenty of oak, vanilla and caramel, grainy malts, and some bitter citrus rinds.
Mouthfeel. Full body with some boozy warmth, smooth low carbonation.
Overall. A great bwine that probably could have stayed in the cellar for another year or two and possibly benefited. Fairly hoppy and still tastes a little young ...in my expert opinion anyways. ;-)
