The best way I can describe this would be, take one of the tall 21s with the lighter hue, (predominately bourbon) from the early 2000s, mid-90s, ramp that up to cask strength, and what you have here is a mindgasam!
Dank earthy dunnage sherry with hints of woven peat. There are a plethora of tropical fruits bursting out of this glass. Dried apricots, cantaloupe melon, peaches, papaya, mangos, loads of stone fruits. There is a creamy sweet mustard note, rich cola, even hints of penicillin in the background.
Perfection! An absolute masterpiece, something that will never be re-created in the future, truly a once-off piece of work.
WOW!! Thick and so creamy on the palate! I know this is 57% but how could you even tell? The fruits come to life in the mouth, and a beautiful vinegarette throughout the mid-palate, honey, beeswax, hints of paraffin.
The finish is so well-rounded, no alcohol burn that you would expect from this high abv. Beautiful oak spice on the finish, dank earth, and tropical fruit for days.
