Description

‘Jet-Black’ was the first comment with aromas of bittersweet chocolate ganache, molasses bran muffins, sun-dried prunes, Madeira soaked raisins, as well as dark roasted black coffee beans. We were hoping of shedding some light on it when we had our first taste neat. The initial impact was dry, bitter and persistent like a piece of 99% cacao chocolate melting slowly in your mouth – quite an experience but we absolutely loved it! Water added an earthy, tobacco, liquorice and slightly medicinal herbal note whilst on the palate, sticky toffee pudding using Medjool dates and black bun with a glass of PX Sherry.
