This is a December 2016 release from Stranahan's as an entry into their Snowflake limited edition line. It contains a blend of Stranahan's spirit that is finished in rum casks, Amador wine, Madeira fortified wine, zinfandel and also contains some 4 year casks and a 5 year cask blended in as well.
Sweet cream, stewed fruits, really prominent wine presence with some faint funkiness. Sweet, creamy, earthy, peppery, toffee.
Medium mouth feel, creamy and lots of toffee. Stewed fruits, pear, buttery chardonnay. Some toffee, caramel, molasses, rich earthiness. Tobacco, pepper, really earthy.
Short, sweet cocoa, earthy and loaded with pepper and deep stone fruits like a nice Cabernet.
Super interesting but all over the place. I enjoy looking back to see what the maturation blend is on these after reviewing and I can't say I'm super surprised. This is all over the map.
