Excerpt: A lengthy finish starts with heat, then fades into oak, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Add a touch of water to reveal a sweeter side, with rich dulce de leche, baking spices, and toasted whole grain bread.

Still Austin has uncorked a cask strength bottling based on their The Musician release. The TX based operation has shown impressive performance so far and it's encouraging to see them doing barrel proof bottlings to accompany their core release.
Apple pie, cedar, pecan, brown sugar and oak. Sweet, a bit of char, lots of sweet wood and fruits.
Oaky and rich on the palate, viscous and syrupy. The proof is doing serious work here - for the better. Satisfying texture and mouthfeel, without big, perceivable, heat.
Long finish, tons of cocoa, brown sugar, clove and angostura bitters. Satisfying balance of sweet, wood forward, fruit and some savory character to balance.
Another impressive bottling from Still Austin, the direction they are taking continues to be encouraging, downright exciting and of course: delicious.
Disclosure: The producer asked us to review this, and sent some along
