Pours motor oil black with a thin layer of caramel tinged foam, thick and viscous, one of the most enticing pours I've ever had.

Heavy and sweet vanilla on the forefront, but not overpowering, is soon met with a sweet and spicy hint of bourbon. Perfectly balanced, if I could smell this all day I would love that.

Smooth and sweet vanilla sits gently upon a rich bourbon backbone. Perfect sipper.

Viscous, sweet, sticky, but enough bourbon to cut through the dessert like flavors to make this a real treat.

Overall, this one will sit in my Top 5 for a long, long time.

Split a 2013 vintage with three of my closest friends… Was very nervous about the fact that this bottle could be infected… But when we opened it there was no gusher… Only tons of vanilla aroma… Amazing oily dark Bourbon vanilla notes !!!! Loved it!!!!
