Smells of french toast with a little spicy and boozy kick on the finish with the cinnamon and vanilla. Taste is more malty, but still lets the rye, bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon, coffee, and chocolate shine. Down the glass the intensity does start to wear on the palate a little. Little heavy on the finish, pulling the dry pastry feel down with it a little, but I'm nitpicking.

Unfortunately regular bitches bank was better. The BA lost its great cinnamon flavor.

12 oz bottle into small snifter. Smelled of molasses, tasted like a fruity bourbon wine. A lot of sweetness, faintly reminds me of Regal rye. Dark fruits, subtle blackberry.
