Rare Barrel. Blurred T. Saison aged in oak with Tempranillo grapes. Fascinating blend of wine and beer. It smells of tart cherries and blackberries. It really reminds me of a cider. Mouth is tons of fruit, alcohol, funky finish with citrus acidity and dark cherries. I’m fascinated to see this one age. — a month ago
Color of concentrated black tea. Nose is high quality bourbon with sweet apple, mesmerizing aldehyde, paint, powerful alcohol and spice in nasal cavity. Taste is extremely smooth, with toffee like sweetness wrapping the tongue, zest, sweet apple, and a bit salty mineral. Aftertaste has even more toffee sweetness, a bit heat. You can hardly tell she is 90 proof. — 8 days ago
Rare Barrel. Mired in the Rind. Really was excited for this and the lavender and lemon peel blast your nose. Tons of flavor going on. A little too much right now. Look forward to trying the other bottlesover time. — a month ago
