Just starting to try these type of coffees, and enjoyed the interesting flavor. Got whole bean and ground myself. Will definitely get again.
I'm new to the whole craft coffee scene, but I have to say this is one delicious cup of brew. I'm looking forward to the next release for sure.
This is my first foray into barrel-aged coffee and was taken back at how distinct the flavors were. You can definitely pick up on the wood flavors and the barrel aging does something to the sweetness. Almost tastes like a honey washed bean. I liked it although Nicaraguan el dorado and the dark roast are still my favorites.
This coffee is fantastic, black or complemented (hindered?) with milk. The roast itself is fantastic, but the additional characteristics inherited from the barrel just adds another dimension that doesn't overwhelm all the other coffee flavors, like you'd find in artificially infused coffees. Give it a shot!
After looking for years to find the perfect complement to a fine cigar that is like to sippin bourbon I believe this is as close as I have got since I quit drinking 15 years ago. I recommend this to anyone looking for a refined smoky flavor with a cigar. It can be enjoyed hot, warm, or chilled and really sets off a good quality maduro cigar.
