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.
