Assaggio da bottiglia @ cantinetta.

Liscia con corpo abbastanza leggero considerato il grado alcolico.
Ricorda molto un passito, escono fuori molte fragole ed un po' di mirtilli.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear dark red liquid, head disappears quickly. Aroma: spreads in the room as soon as I open the bottle. A lot of raspberries and strawberries in the aroma, in the back I get some whiskey notes but the berries are really prominent in this aroma. Taste: a slight tart raspberry and strawberry flavor spreads in the mouth and mixes in with a slight bitterness. There is also some whiskey alcohol in there. Pretty sweet with low level of carbonation. Bottle 647. Enjoy it! Cheers!

Tasted after 3.5 years. It was like a fountain of taste. Raspberry and whiskey nose. Taste: wild pears with grapefruit palate. A little bit malty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taster from bottle at La Cantinetta, Rimini. It pours a whisky-like intense caramel body with the tiniest tan head. Aroma is intensely fruity with raspberries upfront, then leather and vanilla come through. Taste is on the sweet side with more caramel, leather, vanilla and loads of raspberries and strawberries. Light must in the finish. Medium to thin body with soft carbonation. Overall, fantastic complexity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from September 8th 2010. Opened in October 2013 with deanso. 3 years old. Hazy brown with a thin, disappearing, white, non lacy, disappearing head. Smells of citrus fruit, raspberries, and generally berries right away. Malt, aged malt smell (heavy), light acidic tones, raisins and walnut. Some sourness as well. Deep and very complex. Full oily creamy body with soft carbonation.Intense fruity taste of berry mix but mostly raspberries with some woody undertones but you can still taste the alcohol. Vanilla. Strawberries too. Finishes with a taste of raspberry juice with some sourness. Leaves the muon dry and saturated with berry sourness and some lingering malts.
