Excerpt: Much improved with ice, which manages to bring out more flavor, with molasses, char and hints of brown sugar on the palate, moving to a finish with stronger port influence, with red fruits, honey and apricot.

This is a port finished bourbon produced by Barton.
Sweet jam, stewed fruits. Vanilla, honey, caramel. Faint cocoa. Its mostly all sweet.
Medium mouth feel, sweet and fruity. No heat. Lots of stewed fruits here as well as a jammy dessert set of notes like cocoa, vanilla, confectioners sugar, some faint tobacco. Theres no bitterness and its all sweet.
Short, no heat. Sweet whisp of strawberry preserve and then its gone.
Overall, this is really interesting. I love the palate and the nose as a good dessert but the finish is fairly disappointing. Id honestly probably buy a bottle if it were on shelves, just to have around when the sweet tooth hits. Its not super remarkable, though.
