Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 27 in August 2014

Kevin  •   •  4.5

Really smooth up front for a barrel strength; cinnamon right afterward; definitely some cherry notes; This is so easy to drink it's dangerous; sleek, like a beautiful, evil bourbon ninja. 5 drops of water tames her, but there are still throwing stars.

Garrett  •   •  3.5

Hard for me to avoid reflecting on my last night in the Canadian wilderness: a sparking fire, soft waves crashing on the river shore, and a bottle of Four Roses destroyed by best friends, scheming on how to get back. Sweeter than the 10 year and without the after taste, but a flamethrower on the tongue.

Nick  •   •  3.5

Nose strong of cherries, spicy and sweet on the tongue. A touch of water brings out the vanilla.
