Bottle from Livonia Liquor. Pours a pitch black with a finger of brown head that lingers, then dissipates. Cacao nib, vanilla, oak and bourbon aromas on the nose. A touch of dark fruit as it warms up. Balanced on the palate, some light oxidation at almost a year old now. More oak, bourbon and cacao nib on the palate. Some coffee and lingering toasted vanilla. Solid stuff.
