Overall: What comes to mind first, is a Midnight Milky Way candy bar. Call me crazy, or tell me my palate is jacked up, but that what sticks in my head. I revisited this once more in the morning with a clear palate and sure enough, same result. I'm a fan. This pour brings forth that extra toasty profile that is really a huge hit for me in the Library. I didn't think Lux Row could top the already delicious French Oak Finish, and here they drop this on us. At 96 Proof, your mouth and esophagus won't burn while you enjoy this wonderful sipper. I even went as far to pair this with a nice medium-bodied cigar and it brought forth toasted custard notes. I'm happy to have backups of this as this first bottle will not last very long.


Library Rating: 8.4 / 10
