  • Christophers Boal

    Snoothrank:

    Very animale on the nose with a real pigskin/veal component then sweet pipe tobacco and dried apples all edged in soy and bitter cocoa. Nicely sweet in the mouth with significant bittersweet cocoa up front then a bit languid on the mid-palate before coming to an abrupt finish. 84pts Read More
