Clear, rusty brown with golden highlights.
Cracked black pepper and sweet cinnamon and nutmeg nose with warm cloves and red berry fruit.
Aggressive bitter, dry, pine juniper palate with tannin, and much need sweet fruity flavours.
Aromatic, liquorice finish with fruit compôte struggling for attention over the bitterness. We'd score this highly if presented in a bitters bottle with a dropper and aimed at being dripped into Manhattans.
Closure: Screw / Stelvin cap
