Review and Tasting
Sampled on 18/04/2014
Clear, deep (almost opaque) maroon red.
Very pungent concentrated blackcurrant juice.
Intense blackcurrant with some blackcurrant jam. Syrupy mouthfeel with balanced tartness and sugar sweetness but thinner than other higher alcohol strength Lejay cassis.
Dry fruit, with long lingering blackcurrant fruit.
