375ml bottle poured into a snifter. This is 100% barrel aged. Supposedly this has been aging in bottles since Summer of 2011.
A: Pitch black with an ephemeral light brown head. A swirl of the glass leaves a short-lived alcohol collar on the sides.
S: Soy blends with coconut and vanilla. There are pronounced port-like characteristics, reminding me of plum and grape. Sherry-like oxidation accompanies wood and firm bourbon notes. I detect molasses, dark chocolate, brown sugar, and licorice. Quite vinous.
T: Dark and milk chocolate meet soft roasted malt notes and a prominent dark fruit influence: plum, raisin, and grape, as well as a mild tartness. There's a pleasant bourbon presence and the wood imparts vanilla. This is much less roasty than the both the Bordeaux and Nieport versions of Seven. Licorice and molasses suffuse the palate while a low earthy bitterness cuts the sweetness. The finish is rich, with bourbon, molasses, dark fruit, soy, and tannins. Alcohol is evident in the midpalate through the finish but its presence is not inappropriate.
M: Lower full body with upper low carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky, silky, smooth, dry, and tannic with warming on the palate.
Overall: The vinous notes are really strong in this version, even stronger than in the Port and Bordeaux versions. It's aged gracefully but it still shows its age. An enjoyable and complex sipper. Recommended.
