Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/01/2016

Appearance

Clear, light-mid burgundy red with purple glints.

Aroma

Rich fruity notes with raspberry, cherry and jammy blackberry and plum, herbal complexity and faint grass and sawn oak.

Taste

Soft red jammy red berry fruits with raisiny, honeyed, sloes, orange, coffee, chocolate, cinnamon and a mild quinine bitterness.

Aftertaste

Red berry, plum and zesty orange with light quinine bitterness.

Overall

A well-balanced aperitif with rich berry fruit balanced by mild quinine bitterness and spice. A classic cocktail ingredient but equally good simply served on-the-rocks.
