Review and Tasting

Sampled on 10/09/2013

Appearance

Clear, deep mahogany.

Aroma

Huge sherry nose with currant and sultana fruit, cacao, freshly roasted coffee beans, flowering shrubbery and faint star anise.

Taste

Dry, mouth puckeringly so. Burgundy wine-like tannins, coal tar, generous Christmas cake fruit and spice. Water releases even more fruit but be careful not to over water.

Aftertaste

Spicy fruit cake heavily laced with sherry.
