ABV: 14.1%
Closure: Stelvin
Aged in a combination of new and two year old French oak barrels. Opaque dark red black tinged core with a very dark red hue. Spicy dark cherry aromas intermix with earthy graphite and black olive scents followed by hints of anise, smoked meats and dried herbs. Rich and weighty with a sense of opulence, the palate is flooded with ripe black cherry and anise like flavours which carry great power. Smoky cedar, dried meat and spicy dried herb characters ensue. A velvety feel backed by a robust tannin structure which leads into a long toasty and slightly chewy aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
