Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/12/2016

Appearance

Clear (but not bright), coppery amber.

Aroma

Black cherry, maraschino, vanilla, nutmeg, raisin and black pepper.

Taste

Rye spice, pencil shaving woodiness, nutmeg and black pepper spice, rich black cherry, vanilla and candied fruit.

Aftertaste

Vanilla, cherry, black pepper spice and lingering rooty bitterness.

Overall

Put this bottle in the fridge and pour into a chilled glass or ice-filled glass and you’ll have yourself a very enjoyable lazy man’s Sweet Manhattan. Forget to chill ahead of time and end up stirring with ice to chill and you’ll end up with a disappointingly dilute drink. We also enjoyed Jefferson’s The Manhattan at room temperature straight from the bottle – but then again, we were brought up drinking British ale at “cellar temperature” rather than cold beer.
