Review and Tasting

Sampled on 04/06/2012

Appearance

Clear, reddy-brown with brick red tones. (Turns brick-red and cloudy with water.)

Aroma

Pungent, spiced and herbal aromas with orange zest, cardamom, clove and cinnamon most obvious.

Taste

Full-bodied flavour explosion with cardamom flavoured Lebanese coffee, dried fruit particularly orange zest, clove, cinnamon, jasmine and mint. Even diluted there is a cracked black pepper spice but Angostura is not at all 'hot'.

Aftertaste

Long cardamom, clove, cinnamon and bitter orange zest finish.
