Review and Tasting

Sampled before 1st May 2011

Appearance

(cut to approx 45% abv) Deep mahogany in colour.

Aroma

Sherry-laced, dried-fruit, rich, Christmas cake served on slightly burnt toast with a touch of clarified butter and rubber.

Taste

Savoury and yet sweet full-bodied powerful palate. Spiced meat stock, tannic oaky dryness and smoky notes are served with and countered by caramelised dried fruit and dark tangy honey.

Aftertaste

The fruit fades to leave a dry oaky, faintly smoky finish with pleasing hints of treacle.
