Nice clean aroma with a hint of raspberries. Slight edge of bourbon flavor that gets replaced by dark malt, and then a nice raspberry flavor comes in. Overall very balanced 3-way tug-of-war going on between bourbon, dark malt, and raspberries. You can feel the alcohol heart in the aftertaste, slightly lingering in the back of the throat. I think I would like it more of there were less bourbon presence, and it was just the dark malt and raspberries commingling.
Bottled 10/06/15, drank 11/17/15.
4 out of 5 stars.
