San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2020 DOUBLE GOLD MEDALIST
Please limit one (1) bottle per member
An interesting nose - glazed plum tart, apricot jam, and stewed apple with cinnamon - eventually marzipan, grape must and tobacco leaf. The palate stirs up memories of cherry liqueur and Negroni as well as Jammie Dodgers, fig marmalade, medjool dates, candied orange peel and wine-soaked oak. The reduced nose revisits the orange and the apricot (crumble this time) and seems sweeter - spun sugar, toffee and Amarena cherries in syrup. The palate now has brandy snaps, coffee and walnut cake, chocolate and cinder toffee with a drying finish of gentle spices and oak.
