Notes / Commercial Description:
After endless hours of scorching in heat, brewing in turmoil, fermenting in angst, the Assassin’s journey has just begun. In the shadow of the temple, he lies in wait, maturing his plot to perfection. He emerges merciless, dominated by darkness, his bite laced with the charred remnants of his victims. No man dares to cross his path. They will forever sleep with one eye open, in fear of the Assassin’s hot kiss of death.

A bunch of tobacco, it poured a little bit thin for what I was expecting but overall this is pretty solid

I also had a chance to taste the 2018 batch (orange wax) today at Julio's poured by Clark Lewey. Tough to gauge look in small taster but looks super dark and sludgy. Smell is chocolate, sweet bourbon, some tobacco. Taste is chocolate, dark fruits and some roastiness. Also bourbon sweetness, but overall pretty subdued. Not much in the way of booziness. Medium mouthfeel with some good stickiness. Super excited that I got to try this.

Got he opportunity to sample the 2018 batch before it was officially released at a tasting at julios Liquors. Very tasty tasty with big dark chocolate notes. A little on the thin side but delish nonetheless.
