Sample: Pappy Van Winkle 20 Year
Appearance (14/15): long legs, oily, honey gold, like the good honey from the farmer’s market
Aroma (24/25): brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, oak, & raisins
Taste (35/35): vanilla, caramel, buttered popcorn, char, oak, honey, & apple pie
Finish (25/25): long finish, apple pie with a side of vanilla ice cream, & more buttered popcorn and caramel
Notes: Wow! Just wow! I was less than impressed with this when I first opened the bottle. None of this butter & caramel was coming through, but now after airing for a few weeks... amazing!
Score (/100): 98
