    Balcones Brimstone 53%. Consumed Jan 2020. Aroma is plasticky American oak. Pale wood. Tannic American oak. Very one-dimensional. Not great. Taste is very, very woody, moving from tannic wood to burnt wood, layers of woody flavours sort of work over each other but the finish is actually quite short. An impression of very, very highly charred American oak. Toffeeish background. Burnt creme brulee. Sort of like a slightly smoky bourbon but the impression is not smoke so much as char. Yes, very one-dimensional but hey it goes unashamedly big in the one dimension it has. Not bad, but not great. Definitely interesting.
