Bottled at RBESG 2008. A dark brown beer with a red shine under a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of hard roasted malt as well as lighter notes of sweet malt and soy sauce.

Bottled at RBESG. Very dark brown, small beige head. Licorice aroma. Sweet and tarry with thick mouthfeel. The whisky is more restrained than in most Paradoxes, lying in the background of tar and licorice. Salty finish. madmitch76 (24378) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009
23rd August 2008. Well integrated whiskey, Bitter chocolate and some bitter coffee in the finish. Rich and rewarding. cgarvieuk (24230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 Bottle at home ... Deep black ... slightlt sweet roast malts ... sweet fruity ... little toasted oats ... Although description (as i write) says whiskey cask i think this is as sherry cask, and if not getting the level of whiskey that i get from some of the others... In many ways this seems more balanced.

Almost pitch black color, small tan head. Strong Scotch whisky aroma. Soft start, some fruityness, licorice, Islay whisky, which bursts and dominates aftertaste. Quite good balance of flavors in this one.
Dark brown. The aroma is woody, alcoholic, with light smoke and light chocolate. Smooth, full of peppery alcohol and molassesy malt. Fairly burly, woody with some minor iodine character. The least balanced of the three I got to try and that’s why I liked it best.
