Tasting Notes
Oliver KlimekColour: Dark reddish amber - Nose: Bacon, cherries, red and black currant. - Palate: Slightly bitter peat, mixed red fruit, hints of nutmeg. - Finish: Long, fruity and slightly bitter. - Overall: Zinfandel running amok. The heavy finish even manages to overpower the peatiness of a young Caol Ila. If you like smoky Cassis, you must buy this bottle. I don't.
