4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours from the bottle a dark brown with a fine tan head that lingers and fades quickly. First bite is roasted malt, caramel, a little sweet. For an 8.5 the alcohol isn’t overly pronounced, but it does add a pleasant warmth to the finish which is complex enough to keep me coming back.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep ruby with a short lived tan head. Sweet, rich malty goodness with a hint of smoke, peat and wood... I’d almost think it had been barrel aged. Nice hop presence which balances the sweetness well, making sure it isn’t cloying. Lovely stuff.

Bottiglia. Colore ambrato scuro con una schiuma fine e poco persistente, aroma dolce con malti tostati, caramello e ovviamente scotch che con l’alzarsi della temperatura nel bicchiere si fa sempre più presente, in bocca continua ad essere dolce con una leggera venatura amara unita nel finale all alcool dello scotch. L’ho trovata molto bilanciata nonostante il dolce sembra farla da padrone. Consigliata
