Review and Tasting


Sampled on 14/09/2014

Appearance:

Clear, antique copper.

Aroma:

Cinnamon spice, prunes, plums and blackened fruit cake with black cherry and dark chocolate. Clove studded zesty orange emerges with water.

Taste:

Clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice with oak tannins and tobacco are balanced by sweet black cherry, fruit cake and burnt plum pudding. A splash of water tames the spice but not the oak tannins.

Aftertaste:

Lingering wine and oak tannins with some black cherry fruit.
