Tasting Notes by Billy A
Sweet up front, with grapefruit, hay, pine and lots of leafy herbs, including lots of sage.
Sweet with orange and liquorice touches, but with fewer herbs and less complexity than the nose. Wine gums, woody hints and an oily mouthfeel lead to gentle herbal bitterness and a touch of fragrant wood and herb.
Sweet orange and grapes, brioche, spiced pastry, dried apples and a touch of green leafiness.
I rather enjoyed this on its own, with the bitterness of the wormwood balanced well by the sweet fruity notes.
