From bottle, thanks to Theis. Pours deep black with almost no head. Smooth chocolate malty aroma. Flavour is smooth chocolate and with a slight alcohol note. It decends slowly into a smooth dark chocolate and roasted malt finish. The far finish holds some nice dried fruity accents.

omhper (22608) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2007
Bottled at Blackfriars, Glasgow. Black as night. Evident woody whisky aroma. Sweet and full bodied with tar and warming whisky. Salty and intense. Not as out there as the islay version, but still heavily whicky flavoured. Very flavourful and very cool.
