Clear, deep mahogany with coppery glints.
Pungent, pine, tar, cold dust, old leather, fruitcake, cinnamon spice, chocolate and iodine. Water opens and amplifies leathery aromas with vanilla fudge emerging.
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.
Long, tar, rubber, spice and dried fruit with lingering tar, vanilla and spice.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
