The second Reserve of 2021 brings barrel character to forefront, complemented by two separate additions of carefully selected vanilla beans. First aged for three months in freshly dumped bourbon barrels with whole Madagascar vanilla beans, the beer was imparted with a rich and creamy vanilla sweetness. The beer was then moved to a fresh set of bourbon barrels for another three months, this time paired with Indonesian vanilla beans. The flavors of toasted oak from the barrel are amplified, married with subtle smoky, earthy, and fruity notes from the vanilla. The result is nothing short of legendary.
