In the interest of fairness, I am not a huge fan of hazelnut. There is something of putting about the overall profile. That said, at the front the thick boozing this is very apparent. Lingering about the mouth, the hazelnut was very easy to detect. The field was very sticky and sweet, swinging easily to the sides of the mouth. The feel was almost chewy. Raisins and dark fruit were also present. Yet in the overall scheme of things, the hazelnut make this hard for me to like.

To me this tastes like a slightly smoother more chocolatey black tuesday. And I love black tuesday dont get me wrong but I dont think this one is worth the extra effort of chasing down compared to black tuesday. the wax smells amazing tho
