Sent to me and then shared at DLD 2014. 4 oz. in multiple pours in a glencairn.
A - Typical, deep cocoa with a frothy dark khaki head. Looks a lot like Parabola.
S - The tequila spirit only hints in the aroma. Char/ash, dark chocolate, lime, pitted dark fruit.
T - More presence now. Spirity, oak, lots of espresso, obvious alcohol solvency, sultana.
M - Plentiful warming, smooth moderate body, semi-short bitter finish.
D - This is really unique and on-par with the best FW has to offer. Would have no hesitation to try again. Can only really knock the hefty alcohol presence and wondering if it's tougher to keep a tequila barrel in check vs. the usual whiskey treatment.
