look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 1. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep amber with a few islands of white foam and a thin collar.

Smell - Bourbon. Sweet caramel. Barrel notes behind the sugars. Some faint coconut.

Taste - Sharp bourbon. Oak, vanilla, and coconut. Sweet toffee malts, but a dry, oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry and oaky. Not too sweet, which is nice, but a little astringent.

Overall - Decent barrel and pretty tasty, but monotonous.
