Barrel Strength 107.3 Proof      8148/10896

Nose- Fruity.  Subtle sweet burnt sugars balanced with tanins

Tongue- first thing that hits is floral oak sweetness. followed by a little burn on the sides of tongue.

Finish- This is where this shines for me. A little oily , mouth coating up front(a good thing).  Mid finish is an explosion of floral notes backed with oak tannins with a little marshmallow on top.  The finish is long with subtle sweetness with the variety of oaky tannins.
