Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, bottled on 16th January 2021, with a best before date of 9th November 2041. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy but very nice deep ruby red colour with a one finger pink head that dissipated fairly quickly, but left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Intense cherry, cherry skin, cherry pit, almond, marzipan, with light leather notes and hints of tartness.
Taste: Sour, tart, cherry, lemon juice, almond, marzipan, leather, with notes of oak, cherry skin and cherry stone.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation with some acidic sharpness.
Overall: First try of this new blendery that started its project in 2020, and it was good. It’s popping ruby red colour and aroma was great and the flavours were intense, although I would have preferred less lemon and a slightly toned down sharpness. But still, very enjoyable and can’t wait to try the other products in their lineup.
