Overall: I saw a photo of this bottle a few months ago on social media and after some research based off the name and age alone, I knew I needed to locate a bottle and get this in my belly. The color in the bottle alone is so inviting. You can almost taste the oaky pleasure you're about to dive into. The Nose is very familiar and one I'm sure you'd be able to pick out of a lineup with ease. The Palate on this bottle is where I became hooked. As I mentioned, I'm reminded of warm fresh baked Snickerdoodle cookies from the first taste. But that's not all, add a flakey layer of caramel on the bottom edges of that cookie and you have an incredible dessert in a glass. There's still plenty of that toasted char influence (Level 3.5) and all 15 years of oak dancing around my glass to keep things well rounded and complex. It's tough to stop at only a couple sips, so consider yourself warned.
