Tasting notes by Billy A
Blackcurrant chews, sweet grapes, crunchy apples and fruit juice tinged cream, with vanilla extract.
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.
Digestive biscuits, dark fruit, and liquorice.
Fantastic stuff - old school in style and packed with flavour. One to sit and unpick over an evening.
