49.73%ABV.

Fantastic deep nose, buttercream, Mexcian vanilla, savory meaty earthiness. Ground chocolates, yeast, mousse, truffles, dessicated fruitiness/esters, toasted coconut shavings, tickles of wet grass. Medium-low smoke, good sweetness on palette. Enough minerality, complex, good finish. Really happy with how this one has slightly oxidized and softened. Rich and delicious.
