2015 vintage poured into a teku.
L: caramel brown, minimal head
S: oak, dates, figs, a little creme brûlée, faint hints of leather and some alcohol phenols on the back end
T: butterscotch, chewing tobacco, more tasty creme brûlée, bourbon/oaky finish
M: silky with a slight bourbon burn, dry finish

Super tasty, lots of layers of flavor. Great night cap.
