Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Aromas of spice, dark chocolate
Palate Dark, dense and extremely balanced. Great structure, well present but also well integrated tannins with intense chocoate notes. Spicy with an intense and very long after taste. It is a wine with a long auspicious life in front.
