3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a black colour. Taste is whisky like with some wood and vanilla. Not quite as good as the 18 year old but still a way above average beer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Nice sipper as expected - leather and tobacco, light smoke booze fruit and chocolate notes. I like all of the Ola Dubhs with this One somewhere in the middle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black body, barly any head. In this version the wood barrel is the main aroma, vanilla, caramel, slightly peaty and smoky. Flavours of caramel, wood, vanilla, fusel alcohol, smoky and peaty. Medium woody finish. Oily body, low carbo. Better than the 18yr but I still prefer the 12yr.
