Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/05/2012

Appearance

Clear, sand yellow with a green tinge.

Aroma

Green tea and nubuck leather with lime marmalade, (akin to green Fruit Pastel) pine and vanilla.

Taste

Fairly syrupy sweet, yet at the same time aggressive, especially considering the mere 18% alc./vol.. Starts as lime cordial and develops to lime marmalade before green tea and cognac emerge. Sadly the tannins along with a note reminiscent of artificial citrus dominate the cognac.

Aftertaste

Sour, somewhat reminiscent of artificial citrus and ethyl flavourings.
