Intro: A 330ml black waxed bottle, bottled on 28th January 2016, with a best before date of 28th January 2041. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Aroma is quite complex, whisky, dark fruit, brett, dark malt, light roast, chocolate, oak, boozy.
Taste: Light roast, earthy, dark malt, chocolate, whisky, herbal, slightly sour, medicinal.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: I don’t know. The aroma was quite complex but it was on and off. Every time I took a whiff, it changed a bit. But the taste really didn’t work for me. It didn’t really come together. I tried the Bruichladdich (peated) BA after this, and that was enjoyable. The brett just didn’t do anything for me here.
