3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deeply brilliant woods – like those one finds in a centuries old gentleman’s club in the storied cobbled streets of London – cherry and mahogany. A thick tan head fades into a carefree bubbly collar bordering a thin puddle resting in the middle.
Dark fruits explode from the mahogany and cherry depths below with raisins, dates, prunes, and figs covered in sticky saucy black strap molasses. Black root and black licorice root in the raw. Plump earthen leathery spicy grapes. Cooked and cooled raw demerara sugars.
Sweet, rich, dense, mysterious, and a bit roguish. Burnt demerara sugars and unfettered black strap molasses and the finest dark aged rum one could hope to savor. Burnt brown sugar and molasses hard candies. Intriguing addition of red licorice in the back of each swallow. Swimming amidst it all are meaty raisins, figs, and dates. Eyes closed – a fine rummy dram. Eyes open – a fine Scottish pint.
Wonderful. Sweet suppable perfection in my glass. Innis & Gunn can play around with as many barrel/wood aged varieties as their heart desires. In return, I shall aspire to drink as many as possible because I can and I want to.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
delicious aromas of dark dried fruit, rum raisins, dark caramels, vanilla, milk chocolate, toffee, with some buttery hints; thus expecting a silky, smooth, caramel-cool mouthfeel, the fizzy carbonation is a let-down, too fizzy for the aromas to shine again; also: quite some alcoholic heat and too much kind of an empty sweetness.

Malty almost an unsweetened root beer flavor. A bit earthy. Perhaps a hint of rum but not strong.

Cool boozy grape aroma. Flavor is sweet, light, spiced rum. Not boozy at all, very mellow. The light palate is a plus.
