Bottled 01SEP17. Thick, sweet, boozy and bourbonny. Banana is a bit too subtle for my liking, only there when you look for it. Almond is massively there, though, and works very well with the rest. Intense and delicious.

A more faint version of BCS. Very light aroma. Baked and roasted banana. Very soft milky like mouthfeel. Coats the tongue. Banana flavors in middle and finish. Cinnamon, brown sugar and maple. It’s almost grain alcohol notes at the finish
