Review and Tasting
Sampled on 12/05/2013
Clear, coppery golden.
Pungent, dried apricot, ripe cherry, pear drops, amaretto-like almond, stewed peach and battenberg cake.
Sweet and slightly syrupy but with whiskey and peppery alcohol bite. Very fruity with orange zest/marmalade, stewed peach and cherry. Underlying amaretto-like note.
Lingering cherry and amaretto-like notes with lingering blackened fruit cake, crème brûlée, zingy spice and lime zest. Overall reminiscent of Southern Comfort mixed with amaretto and cherry brandy.
