Bottle at Mane Liquor Eclipse tasting. 2012 version. Pours dark brown with a sticky tan head. Nose is quite booze driven with plenty of dry and dark cocoe - almost powdery, with earth, dirt, and sweet molasses. Taste is very dark and bitter chocolate - high cocoa content stuff, with earth and dirt and mild ash which adds some harshness which is working a treat. The burnt tones and ashiness give it an extra complexity which isn’t in a lot of the others. Loads of boozy warmth on the finish. Love it
