Braunstein, Library Collection 11:2, 46%

Review #662
This is 3 years old, from 2008 and bottled 02-09-2011. It is matured in Bourbon and new oak casks, and only 1085 bottles were made. Thick caramel sweetness mixed with dried fruits in the smell. Burned oak and toffee.

Red fruits and dried fruits mixes in the taste. Raspberry jam and dates. Again some burned oak is quite noticeable. The sweetness from the fruits really shows in the finish. It stays for quite a while. Some burn caramel in the end.

The finish from the virgin oak is really showing. Giving it this creamy caramel touch and feeling alongside the burned oak. This is probably not for all, but I enjoyed it. Especially the smell is something I can spend some time with. I will give this 84/100 (22/20/21/21).
