Bottle: Dark caramel-brown & mahogany color. Basically opaque, small khaki film on top. Very, very, very boozy & very, very, very sweet on the nose. Lots of bourbon, oak, wood, vanilla, caramel crèmes, anise, brandy, toffee, butterscotch. Just smelling it is giving me a cavity. Translates to the flavor - very hot & very sweet. Borderline cloying with heavy dark fruits covered in caramel, anise, toffee, vanilla, & sticky sweet toasted malt sugars. Brown sugar lathered figs with a heavy bourbon & brandy booze aspect that burns the throat near the finish. Hot. This isn’t bad, but it needs some time to settle down. Too hot & sweet at the moment.
