Bottle at RBGT. Pours dark brown, yet a bit lighter than 12, 13, 14. More vanilla, less barrel. Better balance, but still a boozy warming sipper. Long caramel palate. A very pleasant sipper indeed.

Bottle at tasting. Dark color. Aroma of malt, vanilla, raisin, whisky and ripe fruit. Flavor of rich vanilla, malt, toffee, raisiny ripe fruit and some booze. Tastes like a barley wine or red port. Feels like it has been aged a little too long, still very good though.

Bottle. Pours very dark, almost black. Small layer of foam. Smell has notes of bourbon. Taste is nice and intense bourbon, over dark malts and an oak-intensified taste. Very nice ! High on bourbon, intense but rather balanced.
