Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Seriously attractive chestnut brown, bronze color. Aroma focuses tightly on the oak barrel element, which comes of raisiny sweet, leathery, and refined but with nuances of pipe tobacco, sweet oak, and marshmallow. Taste profile highlights the tobacco aspects as well as the raisiny woodiness that accelerates in the aftertaste. Sophisticated, luscious. (Mar 2015)
