Tasting Notes

"After an initial sip, one might be compelled to blow an imaginary layer of dust off the top of the glass to clear out some of that underground cellar aroma. It definitely smells and tastes a bit of mature port wine that's sat in a glass next to someone who was recently smoking a pipe. But that mustiness and slight meatiness is well offset by a spread of cocoa almond butter richness, a bit of toffee and toasty oak. "
