look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75


Appearance: mahogany colored. Opaque and full of rye flake sediment. One or two fingers of a tan head that fades slowly and leaves a strong lacing on the sides.

Smell:strong whiskey. Strong boozy quality. Some molasses and toffee sweetness. Some strong dark fruits, raisins and plums.

Taste: opens with an oak like quality. Quickly taken over by booze, spicy hot whiskey. Subtle notes of raisins, molasses, rye, toffee, tobacco. Lots of complexity if you sip at this as it warms.

Mouthfeel: heavy and thick. Quite hot even at 3 years old.

Overall: good and complex but too strong on barrel. I would like those subtle characters to come out stronger for it to be great
