750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown body. Medium khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Lots of bourbon and oak. Light smoke. More brown sugar and caramel.

Taste - Some chocolate that quickly turns to caramel and brown sugar. Some light smokiness with the chocolate. Bourbon gets stronger and wood becomes even more dominant. Astringent and boozy as hell.

Mouthfeel - Extremely boozy. Very sweet. Rough.

Overall - Way over the top, but it's tasty.
