Thoughts: Out of the Master’s Keep releases I would rank this second, behind Decades. I really wanted a more supple body on this to make things flow together. The sherry influence is minimal, so if you prefer your bourbon more traditional, the sherry doesn’t punch as hard as say a Joe Magnus.

Score: 84 out of 100
