Light little zin. The bourbon barrel aging is interesting, but it seems to add a cheap grain alcohol aftertaste.

I just like this so much I have to wonder if the bottle went bad. It had a very bitter and acidic taste.

Dark Cherry with strong Toasty Oak from start to finish with hints of vanilla/caramel and a smoky/peppery finish. The Bourbon lingers for a long time. At first, I really liked, but the more it opens, the more it tastes like Bourbon. If you like Bourbon, this is for you.
