    Kilkerran WIP #5 bourbon

    I am thinking about splurging a bit and taking a break from bourbon and getting Kilkerran WIP #5 Bourbon Wood. I had #3 a few years ago and loved it. Has anyone had #5 yet?

    Creamy, supple mouthfeel, slight Spingbankian oil smoke, a bit of a spirity punch/spice. It tastes a little young to me, but the mouthfeel makes up for that. I actually prefer the Sherry Wood: the young notes are muffled by darker pepper and berry notes. The SW is more bitter on the finish, though, so if you want something a little sweeter and more naked, the BW's your guy.

    Thanks! Sounds like I would like either one!
