Notes from a blind tasting.
Color is Burnt Umber without the reddish touch - inbetween Tawny and Brown Sherry Very sherrylastig, sweet, dark, full. Plums, fruit syrup, time also brings some herbs. Butter and generally takes the sweetness. More time, more butter and herbs, in approach almost medical. The plums get a touched touch. When heated, it looks a bit lighter-colored, and now the alcohol is biting slightly in the nose.
But it is quite tart in the taste, the sweetness is present as a dark honey, but is clearly dominated by herbs and menthol. The mouthfeel is fat, the onset powerful, a bit spicy almost.
The finish becomes increasingly sweeter as menthol subsides. Altogether quite long, with a memory of herbal sweets.
