Review and Tasting


Sampled on 08/03/2019

Appearance:

(sample bottle No. 774) Clear, deep tawny red.

Aroma:

Pungent wormwood, nutmeg, oak, cola, clove, red wine and cream-of-soda.

Taste:

Full-bodied wine and rich fruitiness with assertive bitter wormwood, warming Christmassy clove and nutmeg spice, and light vanilla.

Aftertaste:

Long, dry spicy finish with lingering wormwood bitterness.

Overall:

Based on a full-bodied wine, this is huge vermouth with its bitter wormwood and forceful spice that dry to the extent that this is much more than a mere “sweet vermouth.” Some will find the pronounced wormwood notes too dominant.
