Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/08/2014

Appearance

Clear, deep mahogany with coppery glints.

Aroma

Pungent, pine, tar, cold dust, old leather, fruitcake, cinnamon spice, chocolate and iodine. Water opens and amplifies leathery aromas with vanilla fudge emerging.

Taste

Huge rather than just full-bodied. Tarry coal, rich fruitcake, oven baked sultana and raisins, tobacco, sea salt and pencil shavings. Go easy with the water - somethings are better left untamed.

Aftertaste

Long, tar, rubber, spice and dried fruit with lingering tar, vanilla and spice.
