16 ounce can into a snifter. Released December, 2020, had 3/26/21.

Pours a darker amber, cloudy, with a quarter inch head and light foamy lacing. Aromas of rye whiskey, caramel, malt, some red wine, light brown sugar, light oak and tobacco. The flavor take the same path- caramel, rye whiskey, malt, light red wine and brown sugar, light oak, a little tobacco. Smooth, a good medium body, well carbonated.

The whiskey barrels are very good and show well, as do the wine barrels to a lesser extent. The base is good, but a little plain and bland. Certainly enjoyable, overall.
