Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/02/2014

Appearance

Clear, bright crimson red.

Aroma

Intensely orangey, like opening a box of fresh oranges; distinct pepper, candyfloss and vanilla, fresh citrus zest spray.

Taste

Bitter orange marmalade. Not as bitter, noticeably sweeter and more green and herbaceous than Campari with a syrupy mouthfeel. An explosion of alcohol notes in the mid-palate.

Aftertaste

Bitter finish with faint soapy note and lingering pepper.
