Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/07/2018

Appearance

Clear, deep reddy coppery amber.

Aroma

Bitter chocolate, coffee, cherry fruit, red wine, figs and cinnamon.

Taste

Spicy and fruity. Cherry and jammy strawberry fruit, tannic red wine, cherries, espresso, bitter chocolate, coal dust, struck match and cinnamon.

Aftertaste

Chocolate, coffee, cherry and strawberry fruit, lightly bitter tannins and spice.

Overall

Rich cherry fruit, cream-of-soda vanilla and strawberry balanced by red wine tannins, bitter coffee and chocolate, wormwood and light spice. The fight for dominance on your taste buds between bitter tannins and sweet fruitiness adds interest and depth to this vermouth, but it's distinctive flavour will perhaps have more appeal as a cocktail vermouth rather than for savering neat.
