This one is super complex. All the flavors hit your palate at once and form a completely unique flavor. It’s not as thick texturally as I was expecting, though. It’s thick feeling in your mouth, but it doesn’t coat your tongue as you swallow. The Black Magick has a leg up here, I think, but KBS wins in every other area. Can’t wait until next year!
I would pair this one with another bottle of KBS. See that picture? Yeah.
