DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
500ml bottle from the WIne Cellars, Lutterworth. Good as black with an initially high tan foam lowering to a collar. Aroma has liquorice and blueberry-like sweet fruit beneath ash-flicked Youngs and Cadbury’s. Mouth a mix of ash, rust and warm berries spooned with mocha. Fizzy like Vimto with some of the flavour. Rustic but good.
