Vibrant golden amber. Stuck to the glass, a few sparse, slow moving legs. Nose overflows with caramel, butterscotch, fig preserves, dried apricot and plenty of barrel. The barrel notes are nice balance of wood and char. In fact, the nose's incredible balance unto itself remarkable. Starts sweet, with salted caramel and creamed corn, then warms the mouth and chest showing some spicier notes mid palate. An incredibly long finish and lots of stickiness. Reminiscent of an old oak log sprouting mushrooms on the forest floor. A well-worn in leather couch certainly comes to mind as well. The butterscotch shows up on and off throughout the entire experience. Is definitely a work of art. It doesn't do for me the same thing that the George T Stagg does, but that doesn't take away from the experience in any way.
