PowY (883) - AUSTRIA - FEB 20, 2017
330 ml bottle. Matured in barrels from 2003, bottled 2013 - 10.0% ABV. Pours a pitch black with no head. The aroma is very woody, with whisky, vanilla, dried dark fruits (figs and plums) some roasted malt in the background. Full flat body with a full but soft texture. The taste is only moderately sweet with a light bitterness in the finish. The flavor is again very woody with strong whiskey notes - smoke, wood some alcohol - but still balanced and with some roasted malt in the end. Still the aftertaste is nearly the same to drinking whisky with spicy notes on the tongue.

Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal april-16: kullsort med kort skum. Aroma og smak av kaffe, torvrøkt malt, whisky, tjære, kaffe, lakris, sviskeplommer. Lavt karbonert, slank og lett å helle innpå selv om jeg synes at den dufter bedre en den smaker.
