Hi there again, folks, long time no see.
I wrote this review a long time ago, September 2016, and it was high time I posted it here. Oh, btw: first neat, then iceball. Fad back then (check the pic.)
So let's see: an oily-streaked topaz yellow pour with a rather high-intensity nose: mostly scents from an overpeated cask (yeah, I know that's the idea behind the "double black" thing), the likes of cigar box, pipe tobacco, vanilla, pink peppercorn, resin, spruce...
Mouth is surprisingly soft and delicate, even restrained. After those, let me say, "manly" aromas I was expecting a kick to the jaw, but -nope!! Soothing finish with renewed tinges of tobacco.
'Tis nice indeed, but the nose makes promises the mouth can't keep.
