Tasting Notes

The lone breadcrumb left to guide seekers is an intoxicating scent trail of candied oranges, delicate flowers, the tantalizing aroma of coconuts, a faint hint of glue, and the irresistible fragrance of wine gum.

Once found, savor the strong flavors of candied oranges, the sweet opulence of overripe Gascogne fruits, the delicate touch of raspberries and a lingering dry finish, all carried by a heavy, powerful body with 55,1% abv!

Le blog A Roger

Für den Preis wahrscheinlich die Abfüllung mit dem besten Preis-Genuss-Verhältnis von Grape of the Art in diesem Jahr. (91/100)

Zucker & Zeste

Das ist ein richtig edles Getränk, in dem alles wunderbar harmoniert, aber nicht bequem oder langweilig wird.

A really nice nose though, and an impressive weight overall. (87/100)
