Tasting Note:

This is very Mitjavile, a hedonistic assault on the senses and 15.6% of alcohol. Flowers, damsons, Kirsch, scorched earth, cocoa nibs, roasted coffee bean, incense, spices, cherries, smoky bacon and wild berries, this is big and bold with a glycerine filled mid-palate of decadent ripe fruit.
