|Thanks for the pic, K&L. If I buy from you, |
I can steal your pic for my dumb blog. Seems fair
Nose: Molasses, fig, and a ton of that earthy, oxidized sherry and port.
Taste: Overly tannic sherry. Some deep dark chocolate notes sneak in at the end. There are no explicit bourbon notes. Digging deeper there might be some rye notes, but that's a reach. A nice mouthfeel of a moderate aged spirit with some light oils.
Finish: Big wine bitters, a green-grape style sourness and acidity. Maybe the highlight of the product.
Balance: It doesn't take much to jump this product out to the top of the list for the most extreme barrel finished bourbon out there. The effort does not go unrewarded, this is a weird bourbon product that tastes a lot more like a dessert wine than a bourbon. There is novelty in this product. But it's a novelty that is executed perfectly. Highly recommended.
Would I buy again: One 375 mL bottle is enough.
