Black and opaque at core, fading to a very deep umber, very viscous. Rich and pungent with aromas of molasses, toffee, fruit and flowers - very attractive. Incredibly thick and sweet, this is a mouthful of raisin flavoured velvet with nutty, oak influences, fruit acids and a very long, gloopy finish. Hard work, but wow! What work! Toothache in a glass.
