omhper (22994) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2008
Bottled at RBESG. Very dark brown, small beige head. Licorice aroma. Sweet and tarry with thick mouthfeel. The whisky is more restrained than in most Paradoxes, lying in the background of tar and licorice. Salty finish.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 Bottle at home ... Deep black ... slightlt sweet roast malts ... sweet fruity ... little toasted oats ... Although description (as i write) says whiskey cask i think this is as sherry cask, and if not getting the level of whiskey that i get from some of the others... In many ways this seems more balanced.

Bottled@RBESG Grand Tasting 2008
Almost pitch black color, small tan head. Strong Scotch whisky aroma. Soft start, some fruityness, licorice, Islay whisky, which bursts and dominates aftertaste. Quite good balance of flavors in this one.

Oakes (15292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2008
Dark brown. The aroma is woody, alcoholic, with light smoke and light chocolate. Smooth, full of peppery alcohol and molassesy malt. Fairly burly, woody with some minor iodine character. The least balanced of the three I got to try and that’s why I liked it best.
