Review and Tasting

Sampled on 10/09/2013

Appearance

(sample bottle No. 14/0179) Clear, crimson red.

Aroma

Stewed vegetables, raw rhubarb, cranberry-like red berry fruit, raw pastry dough, earthy and barky, Christmassy herbal spice and floral geranium.

Taste

Earthy, bittersweet, lightly syrupy raspberry fruit, bark and rooty bitterness. Very fruity compared to Campari and with equal or even greater complexity.

Aftertaste

Moderately bitter, tart fruity finish with lingering spice, berry fruit and bitter barky vegetal notes.

Overall

Best described as an English fruit cup crossed with an Italian bitter red aperitivo. Dilute with ginger beer or lemonade on a sunny afternoon then finish the bottle making Negroni’s in the evening. Also works well served 1:3 with sparkling wine (as recommended by its makers). Our only criticism is the low alc./vol..
