(bottle No. 4278, emnotellado: 14/05/2010, elaboración IX) Clear, dark, strong coffee-coloured.
Pungent, strong espresso coffee - so heavily roasted that it smells slightly burnt. Spicy woody alcohol, dark chocolate and faint cigar smoke.
Velvety, slightly sweet but balanced by bitter intense coffee, brewed to wake the dead. Bitter chocolate and mild spice with dry charcoal. Fabulous. Enjoy on the rocks or shake and serve straight-up as a pre-mixed Espresso that takes no prisoners.
Big, long finish with lingering coffee, chocolate and lightly spiced vanilla.
