Review and Tasting
Sampled on 18/06/2012
Clear, burgundy red.
Hint of perfume to a boiled sweet, candied nose with aromas of violet drops and berry fruits.
Slightly syrupy, raspberry pavolvia-like palate (complete with meringue) with violet blossom and a hint of liquorice.
While the palate is more fruity than floral, the finish sees the violet flavours come to the fore. Very rich – possibly a little overly sweet but this is a faithful reproduction of a great cocktail ingredient of yesteryear.
