Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/09/2017

Appearance

Clear but not bright, deep coppery amber.

Aroma

Sherry soaked moist fruit cake, candied orange, madeira cake, vanilla and coal dust with nutmeg, cinnamon and white pepper spice. Water amplifies sherry and ginger cake.

Taste

Rich moist ginger cake, dark chocolate, wood tannins, chilli spice, cracked black pepper, liquorice, dry walnut and new leather. Water reveals attractive Turkish Delight and orange marmalade.

Aftertaste

Chilli heat, peppery spice and nutty liquorice.

Overall

Rich sherry and spice with moist fruit cake and ginger cake. Complex and all too easy and pleasing to drink.
