Review and Tasting

Sampled on 22/09/2017

Appearance

Clear, rust red.

Aroma

Quinine and citrus with floral honeysuckle and elderflower.

Taste

Bittersweet. Quinine bitterness partially offsetting grape, caramel and honeyed sweetness with complex herbal notes (particularly rosemary).

Aftertaste

Lingering quinine bitterness with herbs and white pepper spice.

Overall

Muscular herbal quinine bitterness is made more approachable with light caramel and honeyed fruity sweetness.
