A decent value relative to other bourbon barrel wines. Burnt caramel, vanilla, boozyness surrounded by dark fruit.

Not impressed when we first opened the bottle. It seemed like a novelty wine. But very much enjoyed it the next night. It was more mellow. Must be the opportunity for it to breathe.

Definitely had a Bourbon thing going on. Not my style.

Stewed cassis and plum on the nose gave me high hopes, but dreadfully disjointed in flavor. Finished with a bitter, burned leather quality that made it undrinkable for me.

Not for me, my husband who loves whiskey and oaked wines really liked this.

Surprisingly good. I bought on recommendation. I thought the bourbon tones would overpower but it made for a nice flavor.

Never heard of this bourbon before! I was very excited to try it but was disappointed to find that it just tastes like a 2018 cab sauv. Paired well with the Hot Chili Volcano, page 18 of “Messipes.”
