12/7/20 - Honeyed + boozy cheerios on the nose. Creamy, custardy. Bourbony caramel notes on the nose followed by more of the same in the initial flavor and taste. Initial swallow reminds me of something......burnt? Overcooked? Not super but leads into a nice caramel and chocolate covered grapefruit. Not something I eat regularly, just meaning those chocolatey bourbon notes followed by the nice bitter sour citrus in the very end.
Would I prefer this over an cnoc 12? Maybe slightly. They're related and would live nicely together in a pantry, but if I had to choose ONE I'd go this one for what seems like generally a bit more complexity in its harshness. 2 pts tho for an extra $20-25?
