I always look forward to this release, last year was my first try and it was 1 of my favorite pours. I had some when I first got it, and it was a little sharp. I let it sit a about 15 mins to open up. On the nose I get apple, a hint of pear, oak spice, brown sugar, and caramel. The front of the palate has sugary sweetness, that leads into baking spices,and oak in the mid palate. The back of the palate has more sweet oak, chocolate, and salted peanuts. The finish is long and spicy with a viscous mouth feel, I get a note similar to a honey glazed ham with clove and cinnamon. You really get a long Kentucky Hug with this one and some drying of the palate on the back end. Very enjoyable, not sure if it ranks as high as last years C batch of course I have none left.
