4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught, 8.0%. Very vinous aroma, sweet fruit, hint of spicy vanilla. Cloudy dark red amber colour. The flavour is sweet and spicy, probably from the fruit, figs, that is. Sweet, but balanaced by a good citric flavour that must come from the Bourbon barrel, even though I think it tastes like red wine barrel. Good citric finish.
