Hana @ SOPP Tampere. Kaatuu lasiin sysimustana, noin 1,5 sormen paksuisella pumpulisella vaahdolla. Tuoksusta tuntee heti bourbonin vaikutuksen: vanilijaisuus on niin vahvaa jättäen muut aromit hieman taka-alalle. Löytyy tästä kuitenkin myös reippaasti suklaisuutta ja lakua sekä vähän kahvista paahdetta. Maku on paljon tasapainoisempi, vaikka vanilijainen tynnyri on vahvinta. Suklaa, lakritsisuus ja hento soijamaisuus iskevät hyvin kampoihin tuoden upeita nyansseja makumaailmaan mukaan. Suutuntuma on todella täyteläinen ja öljyinen, makea olematta ällömakea, alkoholi lämmittää myös hieman. Todella lähellä, ettei ole 5/5, mutta nyt kuitenkin näin. Upea tuotos, todella täyteläinen, toisaalta aika suoraviivainen, mutta ne maut ovat todella syviä. Tynnyröintikin on saatu selvästi mukaan. Parhaita kotimaisia ikinä omalla kohdallani.

humpah (230) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2017
0,33l bottle. Pours black color with really small head. Flavor of roasted malts, vanilla, caramel, toffee, alcohol, bourbon. Quite sweet taste, slight bitterness but not very heavy, mediumish body, maybe slightly full. Doesn’t have heavy alcohol presence, smooth and mellow.

330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Ripe roasted bananas with a vanilla-bourbon sauce. Black, briefish tan head settles to a ring and a splat. Very smooth palate, carbonation low. Pleasant roasty taste, bourbon takes over from the bananas - in a big way. Finish is spirity, gotta rein in the overall score for the noticeable boost - punished suitably. Pretty OK, but has as many niggles as wows. Later, helping Anna out with her glass (I thought he needed help, to finish the rating. I think he tricked me. -anna), it’s mellowed very nicely, and has more of the vanilla toffee feel. Worth an extra point, again, perhaps.

Pours black with light beige head. Beautiful looking stuff. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, soy sauce, roasted, oak and chocolate. Intense and complex aroma. Flavour is medium to heavy bitter, heavy sweet, bourbon, roasted and coffee. Feels thick but quite smooth. I can feel the burning of alcohol in this one. I’m having this as a dessert but I feel I could quite well enjoy this relaxing beside a fireplace, listening to some calmins music and watching snowflakes falling outside...

Bottle, e-espa alko. Black, low head. Light creamy vanilla in that pitch black roasty nose, like a good dessert, pencil-like woodyness. Full bodied, supersmooth, super easy body. Savoury dark roast, bit kept easy, sweet, mouthwatering nice. Punchy texture, but not overpowering, the balance is amazing. This is really something. It has a piercing quality that just shoves it down your palate without a hint of the oily icky usually associated with this caliber of ris. I applaud you, pyynikki forbmaking such a drinkable nice one

Hyvä maku. Parempi suutuntuma voisi olla, ei myöskään juuri vaahtoile. Tainnut viinan määrä tehdä nuo huippupisteet muilta.
