Overall: I’m a huge fan of Ten FIDY. It’s so full of life and flavor. This barrel aged treatment took away some of its liveliness and didn’t really improve upon any aspect of the beer. I’ve been chasing this “tick” for years, glad I did, but I’m happy knowing the superior product is in the 4 pack of cans and not the whiskey barrel.
