2012 Vintage poured in to tulip.

A - Thick ink black on the pour with a thin layer of medium brown head.

S - Sweet bourbon and vanilla notes up front with charred oak, chocolate fudge and a light coconut aroma. A fantastic nose.

T - The barrel characteristics shine in this one with sweet bourbon and vanilla flavours hitting the tongue first. A big chocolate fudge presence shows up mid-palate along with roast and sweet molasses. Toasted oak and a light coconut flavor are present throughout.

M - Medium body that never quite gets as viscous as the pour indicated. A touch watery at times for the style. Moderate carbonation.
