    Has anyone opened one of these recently? I had one last night and it had an off taste in it that the 2012 I enjoyed slightly later did not have. It was mostly in the aftertaste, like some weird minerally or tannic flavor. I'm not sure if it was a bad bottle, or if this is the case with everyone's experiences...

    I did open one recently but I "plead the 5th" on the taste! :)

    timely thread; drinking a bottle of '11 now. it's good but the bourbon and chocolate character is diminished as compared to when it was first released. still drinking nicely [certainly no off tastes] but it's not better than before and i'd venture that it'll be moving into "wish i would not have held on to this so long" territory within the next year or so.
