Take two of this Herculean brew (conceived in collaboration with local eatery, La Popular Taqueria) spent over five months aging in choc-bourbon barrels, and the results are delectably complex. Just like the previous batch, ingredients from La Pop’s Mole Negro (a dark and luxurious Oaxacan sauce) are on full display – think cocoa, traditional spices, and four (yep four) chilli variants, to name a few.

As for the casks, all nineteen had their interiors flamed, then doused with a solution of cocoa and water prior to filling; a process designed to impart greater flavour than oak and spirit alone. It pours jet black with cola highlights. Expect aromas of molasses, dark choc-hazelnut, bourbon soaked raisin, and spice. On the palate, we find more of the above - much more - along with hints of espresso, plantain, and smoked chilli, too.
