What the brewers say

“Aged in Weller barrels for 23 months.”

What our panel thought

“Aroma offers toffee malt, herbal hops, cherry esters, a slight phenol between spicy and slightly smoky. Very warming sip—everything from the nose along with raisin, sherry, black cherries, a touch of chocolate.”

What our editors thought

“Aging wood-cellar aroma with a bit of must, strong whiskey notes, a touch of noyeaux and stone fruit. Luxurious silky body with an umami richness that complements the very light fruit-brandy and almond-liqueur notes.”
