Review and Tasting
Sampled on 26/09/2019
Clear, deep tawny-red with burgundy red glints.
Herbal red berry and red grapes with pine, fur cones, nettles and freshly peeled tree bark.
Bittersweet, mulled wine-like. Underlying full-bodied red wine with layers of cinnamon, nutmeg, peppery spice and bone dry quinine, all balanced by honeyed red berry fruit.
Long, dry finish with lingering bitter quinine, red wine flavours and tannins.
As the name suggests, this is a bitter vermouth - or more accurately, a sweet vermouth with pronounced bitter wormwood notes. It makes for either a great aperitif or digestive.
