Review and Tasting

Sampled on 16/02/2020


Clear, deep brown bronze.


Pungent citrus, dried fruit, gentian, cloves and cinnamon.


Concentrated rooty and gentian bitterness but also surprisingly fruity with orange freshness. Spice follows and dominates with cinnamon and clove.


Long fruity bitter finish.


Concentrated fruity rooty bitterness.
