    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 21/04/2013

    Appearance

    Clear, mahogany amber with coppery highlights.

    Aroma

    Candied ginger and vermouth with Christmassy spice.

    Taste

    Initially sweet and slightly syrupy before fiery ginger root spice emerges and dominates with dried fruit and vermouth-like complexity.

    Aftertaste

    Long, powerfully spicy honeyed ginger finish.
