Nose
Rich fruit. Red grape juice. Burnt wood. Liquorice.Touch of tar.
Palate
Crisp and dry. A medicinal taste like a cough syrup.Very concentrated. Spicy explosion. Tabasco.
Finish
Bold, spicy. Tar and liquorice (“pastilles du mineur”– miner's losanges).
Comment
A bold character,delivering the whole package at once.Keeps spirity to the finish. Water cuts the edges but still tooharsh for me.
