Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonNice pure raisin. On oily cinnamon sherry-influence. Compact and very enjoyable. Taste is also big on raisin, I get some gunpowder that spices it up considerably. Quite a big one this, on raisin and gunpowder primarily. Woody. Mouth-coating.
Rich Howardon the nose, berries (as in a handful of fresh berries), vanilla and cinnamon with a pervasive layer of light smoke. the palate offers more berries, toasted spices and light passion fruit. with water, the fruity sweetness is enhanced, adding some toffee and Brach's caramels.
