Overall: This is much more than just a fancy bottle. And I'll tell you, the bottle really does stand out. From the first whiff, I knew this was going to be something I really enjoyed. My love for wine and whiskey come full circle with this particular offering. I also think this is the perfect time of year to try this for the first time. A warming sensation and the almost immediate response to lick your lips has me reaching for another sip. I'm looking forward to finding other Coalition Barrel Finishes to try.


I'd like to thank the folks at Coalition for giving me the opportunity to try this and provide my unbiased feedback.
