    A complex and rewarding dram that deserves a little time to open out. At first taste the tannins dominate but then the spiciness asserts itself. 89
    • Nose
      Spice, lots of spice -nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, white pepper. Vanilla. Cork and light freshly sawn oak. A whiff of sulphur
    • Taste
      Chewing tobacco, strong tea, expresso with some dark bitter chocolate. Dark fruitcake. Spicy with white pepper and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Spicy and tannic medium long finish. Peppery(white) with some mint.

    producer`s tasting notes:

    Dark copper

    Sweet, candy floss, vanillas and toffee. Homemade vanilla ice cream with a soft toffee centre. Fruit flavours making it through after a few minutes.

    Light bitterness, dark chocolate, bitter espresso flavours, slightly tannic, dark choclate covered raisins.

    Long sweet finish that keeps on going. A touch of sulphur at the end as though something has blown out a match. Bottled 2012.
