Review and Tasting

Sampled on 12/03/2015

Appearance

Clear (slight haze), coppery golden amber.

Aroma

Clove, vanilla, orange zest and rhubarb with subtle white pepper, gentian and wormwood.

Taste

Syrupy, bittersweet and lightly spicy with herbal complexity and herbaceousness. Gentian rooty bitterness, honeyed sweetness and white pepper spice all sit perfectly in kilter.

Aftertaste

Red berry fruit, lingering mild quinine bitterness, bayleaf and white pepper spice. Overall: Use as the bitter element in a Negroni for a great drink.
