  • Tasting Notes: Bold and powerful nose, there's cola, bold oak, sweet cream, luxardo cherry, some vanilla and nougat. The palate is rich and layered, its got a pop of ethanol up front that smooths out nicely after a moment, giving way to more cola, cherry, cream and a really big toffee caramel character. What really impressed me about this particular barrel is how heavy and rich on the palate it is, without being a hugely dry oaky bomb. The finish is moderate in length, focuses on light oak, caramel and a touch of espresso, more cola and cherry and a final vanilla character as a send off.
