    I'm blown away. The reminiscent of a Springbank 12 Green thistle only with more punch.
    • Nose
      Chocolate and coffee, raisins and dried plums, light mineral notes and orange chocolate, moist oak and tobacco
    • Taste
      Chocolaty creamy onset, lots of cocoa, very creamy and just a hint of peppery, mouth-filling heat, no bitterness, again very spicy oranges
    • Finish
