3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo, batch #306, enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, black in glass, thin tanned head with nice lacings. Smells of oak, whisky, booze, wanilla and some malts. Taste is heavy sweet, , distinct liquorice flavors and caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and oak in the back. Smooth mouthfeel, full bodied. Heavy bitter finish. This is a very good Paradox. A bit better than the Jura and the former Arran i would say. Very nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with tan heads that disappears quite quickly. Raisins and biscuit on the nose for me, in the mouth reasonably balanced, smooth and with little evidence of the 15%. Not complex but with a whisky dose to finish. Good to have one in the cupboard.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very mellow Impy. Hides 15% really well. Not a great deal of flavour, some vanilla, whisky, chocolate and dark fruit and a hint of smoke. Again, not overly expressive and a tad reserved.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Svart öl med brunt skum. Doft: Mörk choklad, kola, sött kaffe, skogs jord, torkad exotisk frukt, rostad mandel. Smak: Honungs melon, kaffe, omogen mango, humle, mörk choklad, lite rökt korv. Blir nästan lite för mycket kakao i eftersmaken.
