33 cl bottle @ olio, BBE 03/2019
Aroma is sweet with ripe fruits, some alcohol, peat and apricot. Flavour has sweet fruits, peat, some licorice and whiskey tones. Sweet and sticky but works as a slow sipper. And works actually quite well, I’d love to have a bottle with a two-hour movie.

Pours dark orange with a tiny head. Aroma of sweet syrup, caramel, toffee, oak, vanilla, wood, bourbon and berries. Taste is sweet, malty and oaky with loads of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, toffee and hints of berries. Finish is heavy, malty and caramely with loads of toffee, oak, vanilla and hints of berries. Heavy, but complex and balanced slow sipper.
