Five-year old bottle. The wood, cherry and vanilla have smoothed out significantly but the overall flavor is more alcoholic and acerbic. I think aging hurt this one.
2008 release
Smells like fermented raisins and some vanilla. Tastes like tamarind, I'm told that's cherry I'm tasting.
2012 release
Mellow and dark with a nice vanilla barrel-esque character. Hints of cherry without being syrupy, and a wood finish that sticks on the tongue but is not overwhelming.
