NOTES:
What's this? Am I sitting in a corner cafe in Milan? No. I'm just reading that on the packaging here. I confuse easily. But it's not wrong, really. Rich butterscotch on the slurp, slight licorice, too. Sips bittersweetly with dark chocolate and salted caramel notes. 

There's something reminiscent of a Latakia tobacco smokiness, 'nuff so that I would not be averse to lighting a pipe bowl of the stuff. Finish is clean given a robust savory body, bit of charred woodsiness there. Quite a darkly robust yet still lively complex thing, this.

FINAL GRADE: A
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
