Booze. Booze. Booze. In a nutshell, that's what this 2010 version of Double Bastard is all about.
Wouldn't know it when you open it up. The nose is like damp stone and not at all overly intense. Hazy-ish Indian red colour with a hefty number of small bubbles lining the glass. Starts with an impressive one inch magnolia head though it thins and retains some density and smoothness. In the mouth it is very heavy, thick, twisted, rubbery, dry, a trace of dried tropical fruit and brutish. Minimal complexity. Totally booze soaked. The ridiculous alcoholic weight power drives a piledriver to the face where the individual elements are left punch drunk in all that lethal liquid.
Like a 1969 ZL1 Camaro without a steering wheel.
