NOTES:
Nigh smoky & high toasty. Sips in a boldly bittersweet manner with forward dark chocolate and molasses. The chocolate has a bit of a roasted-malty grain under-note all its own. Slurps with a decent dose of black walnut and new/separate milk chocolate. Some hardwood on the finish and touch of anise to the nose.

Clear & never cloudy. Purposeful and well accomplished of its Frenchy task. Not complex per se, but very & deeply/darkly nuanced, in quite harmonious balance.

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