Dark inky color and first pour through an aerator exhibited dark fruit and a lot of heat on the initial taste and on the finish. Four days later, dark fruit, pencil, and some tobacco with less heat and an oak barrel tastel on the finish. Maybe it needs food to rein it in.
Medium lite in color, cherry and spice, and most of all - balanced with the Forte. Wouldn't know it was there if not mentioned. Somehow I ended up buying 10 bottles and after tasting it for the first time, I struck a treasure chest. Very nice QPR and great QPR!!! Great job Scott!!!
