Notes

The beautiful deep bronze colour tells you this will be dark – sure enough, the nose has treacle, molasses, Black Magic chocolates, black tea, bodegas and Captain Black dark pipe tobacco. The palate is viscous and visceral and deep as the bag-end of a Black Hole, deep as the trench where the Kraken sleeps – blackstrap molasses, syrup of figs, liquorice, clove and Veno’s cough syrup. The reduced nose has dark rum, Jamaican ginger cake and cricket balls. The palate – chewy dried dates, prune stones, Jaffa cakes and maple pecan Danish – makes you sing like Paul Robeson – an amazing after dinner digestif.
