Batch 866/2, huge thanks to Alex for this treat. Wow. Seriously. Honey sweet booze heavy aroma. Just smelling this makes me want to fall face flat on the floor. I can’t believe how different this tastes to how I expected. Huge honey, brown sugar sweet flavor. Lingering sugar sweet flavor. Like nothing I’ve ever tried before for sure. Damn.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Classic Alex (fiulijn), pours a clear amber with no head. Nose is very hot, with loads of alcohol, treacle toffee, and intense sweetness -- a little paint thinner too. Flavour is intensely complex, with loads of honey syrupy amazingness, treacle toffee, and a little booze. Remarkable wild honey complexity to this. So viscous, but somehow very easy to sip. Phenomenal stuff.

Bright appearance, amber color. The aroma is deep, mature liquor; some wood fruits and spices. Syrupy sweetness, broken by the warming alcohol feeling, yet velvety mouthfeel; very sweet honey flavor, mature, with just a hint of wood and spices, and some fruit freshness. Splendid.
