Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/09/2017

Appearance

Clear, pale golden amber.

Aroma

Mixed herbs, quinine and floral honeysuckle and elderflower.

Taste

Bittersweet with quinine bitterness growing through the palate. Rich grape juice offsets complex herbal quinine bitterness with zesty lemon and lemongrass.

Aftertaste

Lingering quinine bitterness with zesty lemon and white pepper.

Overall

Even when served neat at room temperature this bittersweet aperitif is very moreish – you’ll want to refill your glass. Herbal quinine bitterness throughout with zesty lemon and lemongrass.
