The power is evident from the first sniff. Syrupy and dense concentrated raspberry with cola, pencils, fresh herbs and baked orange citrus. Full raspberry assault with flavour level intensity 9.5/10 before those herbs and smokey echoes. Gravelly tannins roll on like the second trailer of a B-double. Finishes with warmth from the alcohol, but not too hot. One for the hedonists.

RRP: $45

Alc: 15.5%
