Paradox compass boxThis beverage is black in color and produces little head whilst pouring. The nose is clearly hinting towards burnt oak, resonance of delish roasted malts utilized herein. Also, the whisky is evidently showing itself, blended with outstanding coffee aromas infused with figs/deep fruityness. There’s also dark chocolate going on here. Tastewise, it is indeed a strong alcohol content pointing in the direction of Irish coffee… Much sweetness (chocolate) at first, followed by fruity impulses that gradually is overwon by bitterness from the coffee. All the while whilst the alcohol-warmth combined with a fair degree of smoke tingles the palate, associating this dark beauty with incredible whisky-based landscapes. Outstanding.
