Popped and poured,

nose of nutmeg, allspice, spirits. alot of spirits.

the taste was detracted by the spirits, sweet entry backed by some celery but a nice tart cherry was lingering around. It finished with a spirity after taste.

better on a much colder day.

85.

A light jellyish ruby colour. A lovely nose - toasted nuts. Light entry, dry, very pleasant - was guessed as a Dow, possibly 63, 66 or 70. Good.
