Member Ratings and Notes
Nose is "purple" with candied fruits, really nice and classic.

Ohh, that palate is so nice. YUM. Big raisiny stuff.  Excellent balance of sweetness with oak. Finish has black licorice sometimes, which I don't like as a candy, but I like it here. Can't take notes. Must drink!

I'm told this is a bourbon cask but I taste sherry in here. Who cares. This is completely outstanding and the definition of delicious.  A/A-

N: Honeyed, lemon wax, wonderful sweet citrus fruits.  Cookie store.
P: That's just delicious!  Cool sweet and rich dessert notes, nectary sweetness coats the mouth.   Oily.
F: Chocolate mousse and nougat?   Again, very dessert-like but not a sweet one, a rich one.   Butterscotch candies.

Seriously debating A on this one, just really love it.
