Tasting Notes

Notes of green tea and a variety of floral nuances add breadth to the aromas of black cherry liqueur, earth and the sauvage. I very much like the texture of the sleek, delicious and tension-filled big-bodied flavors that culminate in a very compact, powerful and very much built-to-age finale. This lengthy and mouth coating effort should age effortlessly though it's not so backward that it couldn't be approached after 7 to 8 years.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (85), January 2022

A relatively deep purple. The nose just shows a little bit of cooked fruit. More peonies perhaps and an interesting sombre dark fruit overall. I think this may be 14+ too (but it is not apparently). It comes over fresher on the palate and certainly with a most astonishing intensity. If the slight lack of freshness is a sample issue then this could be mind-blowing and a certain five stars. Fresh stems behind. Exceptionally long finish.
