Bottle with the Belgrade Boys at Halloween tasting. Rich, soapy foam. Chocolate covered cherries, great whiskey character. Sweet, smooth. A little more body than 16y/o. Tobacco and peaty smoke. Lovely, tasty, subtle. Not as interesting as the 12y/o in the end though.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours opaque sable with a thick and rather persistent tan head. Aroma tempts with strong roast malt, molasses, chocolate, smoky, whisky-soaked wood, and earthy tones. Flavor delivers not quite as much as the aroma, but still pleases - and now the vanilla snippet finally comes forth. Mouthfeel presents firm, viscous body and strong fizz. Worth seeking.
