On ice at Domo, Eurobuilding hotel, Madrid, back in May 2017, when I scribbled down this review that now comes to you all, thanks to the magic of internet.

I've seen this one stated at 40% ABV around here, but I swear my bottle read 45% (good for me!)

Depending on your waiter at Domo things can be smooth or rough (whiskey-wise), and in this case it was the latter: highball, a truckload of ice cubes... So you take your pic, they take the bottle away, then ask for a lowball and remove all your cubes but one. This venue is usually a high standard for all things whiskey, but a freshman can spoil it. Okay, I'm rambling.

Back to the review: here we have a clear amber pour with a veeeeery sweet nose: the likes of honey, lemon drop, banana jello, peach... Along come a hint of shisha tobacco and jalapeƱo pepper, to balance things a little.

Taste is dry, pungent and powerful, clearly drifting away from what the nose forecasted initially (it lies more along the secondary lines of tobacco and pepper), with a very boozy sip and a tobacco-ladden, medium-lasting finish.
