Outside on my back porch on a nice moonlit night I decided to go on with my minis I bought in N.C. with as planned J.W. Black Label. Let us begin shall we...
Nose: Sweet with the smells of honey and dark fruits quite inviting start. There is the earthy scent of malt and a slight assortment of grains. This is already proving to be better than its younger brother.
Body: Soft and gentle body on the tongue I call it around medium weight by volume. Still quite good.
Taste: Slight sweetness on the front of the palate then comes buttery oak and earthy grains and a little vanilla. Gentle subtle flavors, nothing too overpowering. Its as if there's a harmony among the blended flavors like if all of your friends came over to greet you in an orderly fashion after you've been away for a while instead of all of them running at you at once. (Odd I know had a little trouble coming up with a good one).
Finish: Medium to medium-long in length soft and smooth with a little bit of smoke and fruit on the tail end. Also semi-drying on the way down but no burn or harshness.
Overall: I can see why this is one of the good blends to go to when there aren't any singles near by. Quite the step up from J.W. Red. Now I've got to acquire a couple bottles of J.W. Green (one to save) before they're all gone, good thing my liquor store is in a college town.
