Thanks Chris for the bottle. Enjoyed in a wine glass at room temperature.
A – Glossy oily pour with a single finger head that disappears instantly.S – Wow. The HUGE chocolate notes are mind-blowing. Tons of vanilla!

T – Chocolate and coffee beans up front with molasses. MIddle is nice oaky cognac and butterscotch candies. Finish is roasty and laced with vanilla and cane syrup.

M – Big body, uber sweet and loaded with sticky boozy deliciousness. Not a lot of cream and could use some time to lay down for a while and improve.

O – This is great but very hot and very sweet right now. Could use some time but it’s nice and complex and very drinkable. A 750 is a lot to drink at once.
