What I have is, I think, the 2005 (122.9 proof). I like it but I don't love it. I get mostly sugar and soot. It needs a little water but you have to be careful. Too much and it falls apart completely. The finish is very nice; clean, sweet and long. I can't tease much more than that out of it. The above sounds more damning than I intend. As I said, I like it, but I don't love it. The finish is the best part.
