ParadoxArranDark as night and with a very deep, fruity aroma in direction of plum. Feeling of dark berries (sweet cherries, plum) with big degree of sweetness. Hint of coffee in the back- kind of reminds a lot of Black Tokyo Horizon, with a minimal hat on top. On the palate: Mild acidity, massive sweetness. Surprisingly little traces of whisky-casks. A great deal of berry-fruitiness which is long lasting and finalized by a hint of bitterness towards the end, the fruitiness slides over in acidic bitterness. This lasts for a good while leaving only bitterness to the aftertaste.
