Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/11/2019


Clear, crimson red.


Pleasant with hints of bitter orange, floral notes, tropical lush greenness, geraniums and expensive soap.


Brilliantly balanced: rooty, red fruit, strawberry and raspberry flavours along with orange citrus and sweet lavender-like soapyness.


Bitter finish but not as bitter as Campari.


Attractive berry fruit, orange citrus and sweet lavender-like floral notes. Select is fruitier than Campari and with a softer finish.
