Deep red in the middle, with a pinkish edge. Tobacco and peat predominated on the nose. In the mouth, good, elegant fruit. After-taste tasted oddly of Cognac but attractive nonetheless.

J Sarson & Son bottled. Lovely mature, red colour. Gorgeous, open nose, full of ripe cranberry. Big palate presence, sweet and full of red licorice with hints of Angostura Bitters. Bitter aftertaste, but big and mouthfilling; this morphs into a long, sweet finish. This has a surprising amount of structure. 88/100.
