Tried from a bottle blind from @LaitueGonflable to accompany an Afghani dinner.
Pours a deep, volatile, boozy brown with lots of hazing in the body. It's quite fluid and liquid in the glass, but with a sense that it's big. Only minor head on it: it settles out very quickly.
Lots of phenolics and esters coming through on the nose. I got banana, weizeny spices and serious booze which gives of raisins, rum-soaked dates, and banana leaf. There's a slight sulphur character as well which isn't all that welcome, but otherwise it's pretty impressive.
Taste is thin and hot, with a withering ripeness and strength to the booze. Lots of dark fruit characters coming through but always pitted against that boozy sharpness which pierces and eviscerates it. Some stewed raspberry on the back along with a darkness that's almost inseparable from the booze. Finish is long, boozy and extremely sharp. It's intense stuff.
Feel is sharp, hot and boozy. It almost hurts.
There is impressive weight and heft of alcohol to this, and it plays with it well enough. The sharpness precludes it from being anything else but a sipper, but when you do sip and savour this it has stacks to show off.
