This is a yearly LE product from Stranahan's. This particular release is finished in a variety of wine casks. This particular release is also named after Mt. Evans. It was released in 2016.
Holy balls. There's an initial overload of corn, followed by the gentle entrance of brown sugar. Lots of brown sugar. This blends nicely with finer notes of vanilla and molasses.
It tastes a bit different than I expected from the nose. Lots of cinnamon to begin with and then the old usual suspects creep in like I thought they might. Vanilla, followed by brown sugar. Its warm, sweet and coats nicely for the proof. There's some faint stewed fruits, honey, clove.
The finish is long and complex, leaving behind some smooth molasses and spice. I love it.
Overall, I really enjoyed this dram. It was certainly unique, but Ill be interested to try other Snowflake releases also.
