La Famiglia Nostra, The Hogfather, 13 years, 2005/2018, 57.1%, 66 fl.
Color: shiny mahogany
Nose: Very beautiful speckish-salty smoky swaths surround a complex construct of aromas of sour cherries, nuts and a hint of bourbon vanilla. Spicy oak and Christmas spices complete the overall result.
Palate: In the mouth then the full power of smoked bacon and red wine. The first sip overwhelmed. The second shows a nice sweetness of dried fruits, cherries, raisins, plums. Very complex and dense.
Finish: Long, dry finish with lots of sweet dried fruit, nutty and again the bourbon vanilla. Very sweet and long. Great.
Conclusion: 89/100 points. "Amarone meets Bacon." This whisky offers not only an incredibly awesome art-work, but also very complex flavors, suitable for the Christmas season. Unfortunately, there were only 66 bottles of 350ml each. Great whisky, for the whole evening!
Buy more? Yes, I would, if I had the chance.
