Wasn't sure how this Anniversary would match up with the Parabola and others aged 1+ years. It was actually delightful. I was hesitant, because the '12 Anniversary off the shelf wasn't near as good as some of the years prior, in my opinion. But... it was very good. The recipe for '13 seems a bit bolder and I'm anxious to trying that one next year this time. This one, great recipe even aged at a year. Thinned a little toward the end.
