Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/04/2012


Clear (although sediment is visible in the bottom of the bottle), vibrant violet with turquoise blue highlights - reminiscent of methylated spirits.


Perfumed floral violet blossom with white cacao and the merest whiff of carbolic soap.


Fabulous, clean, intensely Parma Violet-flavoured with a slight chocolatey soapy note.


Lingering Parma Violet with slight peppery citrus acidity helping to balance syrupiness.
