    October 26, 2020 - This one is all gone. Nothing but raisins and alcohol.

    May 8, 2020 - Probably past its peak - showed nothing but heat from the alcohol and dark fruit jam. tasted... "thick".

    December 24, 2018 - Aging nicely, still drinking well, big but the alcohol again doesn't overpower; mostly fruit with a bit of herbs. Drink now.

    December 21, 2018 - Rich, extracted dark fruits, black pepper, oak. Very tasty. Not for the feint of heart.

    April 10, 2018 - My final bottle. decanted and showing light sediment.
    Sadly this is at the end of its road. Jammy fruits cloaked in alcohol and notes of licorice, ganache and spice.
    The palate follows suit. Fruit, alcohol, spice and ganache notes. finish falls short of what this once was and seems a little clunky.
