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.
