2018 Cowboy Tasting Notes
A bare-knuckled heavyweight prizefighter. Big, rich and oily. Looks like mahogany syrup in a crystal glass. Ground cloves tickle your nose with still-smoking branded leather, caramel and chili powder. Says “BOOM” on your tongue! Milk Duds. Licorice. Mom’s chocolate satin pie. Segues to S’mores on toasted cinnamon graham crackers. Scorched honey and sweet molasses. The finish is long and solid with tobacco leaves, tawny port, toffee, pecans and chocolate fudge.
