    Re: High West Campfire Refresh: French & Hungarian Oak Finish

    B&B-

    Have you had the Angel's Envy bourbons & rye? Those are finished in Port & Rum/Cognac barrels respectively.

    Tokaji is great stuff! I would think it would be more suited for malt whisky finishing than bourbon.

    All I can say, is I totally dig on the original Campfire. Just so funkalicious... Totally whacked whiskey. Goofballish. Absurd. But, it really works for me.

    Tell us how you really feel Joe?

    Stopped by my local store and they had 2 bottles. One was batch 10 and the other was batch 13FO5. What does the FO5 mean?

    How did this one turn out? I've got one open Campfire and another waiting, so I'm not going to get an XO-2 if it's not noticeably different.

    Haven't opened it yet as I'm still on an older bottling... But I'll probably end up getting an "X" bottling at some point.
