Tasting Notes by Dave Broom
COLOUR: Bright, yet deep mahogany cut with flashes of ruby.
NOSE: Initial treacle notes precede dark chocolate with super-ripe black fruits, muscovado sugar and walnuts. A drop of water releases notes of black banana, liquorice root, tamarind paste with an exotic edge of balsamic.
PALATE: Starts off thick and sweet, becoming light and oaky before a burst of cassis/crème de mûre then espresso and cacao.
FINISH: Very long with light scented wood, black fruits and cigar tobacco.
