  • Intro:

    This is a Mashbill #2 release from Buffalo Trace that is international only. It is bottled at cask strength.

  • Nose:

    Big vanilla, earthy pepper. Toffee, oak, sour fruit, faint ethanol.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, rich honey, a good deal of heat. Earthy pepper, bitter cocoa, faint vanilla. The heat is pretty prominent here but the earthy cocoa is interesting.

  • Finish:

    Long and hot, but loaded with vanilla and a bit of earthy cocoa.

  • Overall:

    These are always really different to my palate, and I can't say I love them, but the palate on this SFTB was interesting and unique.

  • Score:
