"Despite the recent reduction in proof, the flavor profile is still intact. The aroma is that of flat vanilla coke with just the slightest hint of char smoke. The mid-palate is full of apple and cherry skins and while the finish lasts about the as long as it takes to blink an eye, it is pleasant while it lasts."
