    For today's thirsty Thursday pour we have what is probably the most unique Whiskey I have ever tasted! With beer cask finished Whiskey I either find that they are tasty or just plain $h*t! So at almost a $100 for this one, there is absolutely no way on earth I would ever consider buying a bottle. Typically I would see a pour of this go for $25 or more, so again a hard pass! This spot has had this bottle since 2016 and it's still 3/4 full. So they said they would sell me 2oz for $12. At that price curiosity got the better of me.so I just pulled the trigger. As you can gain from the Distiller description this is a bit of a Frankenstein blend. It's 60% straight malt Whiskey and 40% hop flavored Whiskey. They are then aged separately for 2 yrs in Ex french wine barrels before being combined and aged for an additional year in ex Chardonnay barrels. Only 10 barrels were ever produced hence the name of the Whiskey. On to the tasting. It enters and smacks you with an intial caramel and big butterscotch notes with a nice silky texture. It then transitions to campfire marshmallows and smoked oak. It then moves to a long Hoppy beer, grape and oak driven finish. Tannins bounce on the tongue as the finish lingers. I really can't decide what I think about this pour. I don't dislike it but I don't like it. It's for sure complex but I am not sure it is a "good" complex. Like the first time I tasted the great Lap 10 I am just left very perplexed, which I suppose earns this one some kudos. Unlike the Lap 10, I have no desire to ever buy a bottle of this! However, I am happy to have tasted it for this price! Cheers all!

    Very unique flavor. The hops from the IPA is very pronounced on the nose as well as the palate. Floral notes from the Chardonnay barrels are equally pronounced, which linger through to the finish. Vanilla and honeysuckle come in and out. Not your everyday whiskey and certainly not for everyone. An cold cube is recommended.

    Wonderful caramel toffee notes with some chocolate. Great hot Caramel sauce with ginger so finish. Can’t decipher any heat on the palate until you’ve already swallowed.
