Bottle, at Plan B, Copenhagen. Fine spicy and oaky aroma, vinous notes. Flavour is spicy and VERY sweet. Would go well with Christmas cakes, I guess. duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle. Quite spicy, with lots of those christmas cake type flavours. Raisins, christmas spices. Quite a soft, yet sweet mouthfeel, some alcohol noticed in the finish. A little too sweet for me. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
