3.65/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

750ml into ccb snifter appears a crystal clear mahogany with khaki top that fades leaving spotty lace.

Aroma has some bourbony tang, papery oxidation and some nuttiness. Caramel and vanilla across the back.

Taste has mild oxidation upfront tasting like cardboard with a bit of nutty appeal. Bourbon, caramel, vanilla and toasted grain.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. Its decent and boozy. Has quite a bit of oxidation but overall not bad.
