    Young, sharp, irrepressible - bad balance

    Wow, FFS and mega proof... okay! Full disclosure I got a half bottle split with a firend in Ottawa, and this is from the lower end fo the bottle. Let's poke the 130+ proof dragon!

      Wow, multivitamin and cherries. Hard worn oak, and summer heat. Fried rasins and charred caramel. Wow, vine-y and wine-y, sharp heat, hot spices like fried Tardka of made of mustard, clove, cumin and cinnamon. Hot, but not crazy out of line.

      Okay, this is a little busy, water this big guy down! Cinnamon hearts and maraschino cherry syrup, loads of heat here too! Dough, salty and sweet at the same time; Italian red wines meet syrup and vanilla ice cream with a twist of cherry syrup. One-note-y but one hell of a note!

      Bright and hot, maraschino cherry sryup and mint, chocolate and so much more. It's incredibly stong, but not derivative ot the whisky if you settle it down with water. Like a black forest cake without all the sugar. Rich and fantastic.

    Quite divisive and hard to digest due to it's nearly 70%, but I think it's super with a lot of water and patience. 88/89.
    • Nose

      Sherry, caramel and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Powerful. Caramel, sherry, honeyed green apple, matured oak, pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, spicy, fruity.

    Not complex, but quite interesting
    • Nose
      87 87
      Lots of sulfur, pumpernickel, sour bread dough
    • Taste
      88 88
      A lot of sulfur, which is very well integrated. Even with a lot of water very stormy and dirty. The individual aromas are difficult to differentiate
