| Malt Advocate 81 points (Aug 2014)
Aptly named after an inferno from an 18th century hot air balloon tragedy. Kaboom! The alcohol singes the nasal cavities, baying for you to succumb, but there is underlying maltiness, tight currants, leather bootlaces, allspice, cherry, stewed apples, and damp warehouses. To taste: fire in the hole! At full power, it strafes the taste buds into submission, leaving them numb and cowering for the abatement of the peppery, dry finish. Brawn vanquishes subtlety. Douse liberally.

A nutty, earthy, honeyed nose leads to an earthy, floral and full-bodied palate. Dried herbs, woody notes create a complex flavor profile. The liquid is full-bodied and well structured, with a soft smoky note.
