Whisky baaardzo du?o whisky w aromacie, do tego gorzka czekolada, praliny nadziewane whisky;) w smaku podobnie, do tego delikatny lekko pikantny finisz (dodatek papryczek w pierwotnej wersji zobowi?zuje). Nie sprawia wra?enia ci??kiego piwa. Polecam!

Pump @ Lortica, Bologna. Black beer and a big beige head with lots of bubbles. A full flavour bomb of an IS. This was very hard for me to drink as the whisky was overwhelming in the flavour. There was a burning sensation in throat on every sip. And I like good whisky!

Bottle (take away from Drunken Duck); pours black with a very thin brown head; has a smoky aroma with hints of malt, chocolate, and alcohol; taste is chocolate and malt with smoked wood and alcohol; has a dry boozy finish; while the alcohol is noticeable, it is not overpowering; this is a nicely balanced imperial that is easy to drink

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2015 Bowmore-barrel aged version of Verdi with added chilli peppers. Sticky, firm, beige head, colour very dark brown, near black. Powerful and delightful aroma of coffee powder, toffee, tobacco, tar, cherries, hardly any chilli peppers (not sure if this is a good thing or not)... Peaty, earthy and smoky profile, chocolate and sweetish honeyish malts, liquorice, light peppery finish from hops and for all I know from the chilli peppers, some warming, very agreeable, whisky-like alcohol. Another masterpiece from Ducato - ti amo!

Draught @ Øllets Dag 2014, Kolding. Pours cloudy very dark coffee brown with small light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and coconut and vanilla touches from the barrel. Booze in the long nose but that is understandable. Sweetish and vinous flavour of malt and coffee beans, with pronounced notes of barrel AMD sweetish hints of vanilla. Very low carb. Warming alcohol presence. Bittersweet aftertaste. Perfectly balanced. Sooooo good.
