Tasting notes by Billy A
Nose: Blackcurrant chews, sweet grapes, crunchy apples and fruit juice tinged cream, with vanilla extract.
Palate: Dark, sweet liquorice to start, with woody spice sitting behind, providing more body. Damp wood develops with rich blackberry tarts and blackberry leaf. A touch of water brings out 'old' flavours - earthy wood and hints of forest floor. It also reveals more of the sweet vanilla from the nose and some sharp stone fruits - apricot and peach.
Finish: Digestive biscuits, dark fruit, and liquorice.
Comment: Fantastic stuff - old school in style and packed with flavour. One to sit and unpick over an evening.
