2017 - Green Wax

A- Black with light brown head
S- Standard dark lord smell - dark fruits, sugar, bit of coffee ... where is the bourbon?
T- Just a bit smoother than standard dark lord and a bit less sweet, but still has many of the standard dark lord notes. Wish I could taste the bourbon more
F- THICK
O- Good, but not a ton of bourbon
