2013 edition Bottle #431/450. Thanks to Pat for sharing.

Midnight black with an impressive, persistent mocha head. Totally looks the part.

High cocoa dark chocolate, fennel, aniseed, tobacco. Hints at sweetness via fleeting wafts of carmael fudge, but otherwise it's uncompromisingly dry.

Feel is full and even. Booze is well contained.

One of the more impressive and untarnished RIS's around. Unapologetically roasty and ballsy.
