Warehouse G, floor 4, barrel #20-0261. 9 year. Oak and spice bomb. Very warm soothing finish. Some sips I get some bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste and that kinda ruins it for me. The bottle has been open for a while and it hasn't improved. If it weren't for that, this would be one of my favs. With some water it does seem to improve and dilute the bitterness. I get a bit of the same bitterness with Wild Turkey Rare Breed. Maybe Wild Turkey isn't for me?
