Intro: A 750ml corked, caged and paper wrapped bottle. 2016 vintage. Bottle 702 of 940. Poured into a Chimay goblet glass.
Appearance: A cloudy dark brown colour with a one finger beige/tanned head that had good retention, but eventually settled to a creamy replenishing cap, while leaving some nice curtain like lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, whiskey, oak, vanilla, caramel, cream, with notes of dark fruit, berries, plum, raisin.
Taste: Sweet dark malt, lots of vanilla, oak, caramel, whiskey, with hints of dark fruit, berries, plum, raisin, and a boozy warming finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, full bodied with soft to moderate carbonation.
Overall: An enjoyable sipper. I think it’s aged well compared to when I last tried it two years ago. Good to open in winter with the warmth it provides, but I suppose an air conditioner works too. Perhaps would have preferred more dark fruit, but that was easily overpowered by the whiskey, vanilla and caramel.
