Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours a black body with a small light brown head leaving fair lacing. Port, roasted notes, liquorice and tobacco on the nose and faint barrel notes.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
@ Silenzi: doften består av fat eller treflis. Smaken är udda och för mig inte särskilt god. Mycket vinös med en mycket torr eftersmak.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. Batch #245. BBE 2022.
Pours deep dark brown color with minimal head. Aroma of bourbon, ash, leather, salt and liquorice. Flavor of salt and lots of salt, cocoa, vanilla, burnt malts, chocolate and creamy salmiac. Smooth creamy and salty palate with dryish finish. Not bad but obviously the strong salt flavour was not intentional.
