In a word - Fantastic!!!
It is so sweet and fruity, it is astounding to be honest.
Initially, loads of a rich amalgamation of muscatels, raisins and juicy sultanas then topping out with a peachy, nectarine hit that is quite intense. Huge body and impressive acidity that tingles across the palate, completed by an extended finish that is very reminiscent of the wonderful Cote d'Ivoire Red African Cocoa we bought from BeanBay a while ago - So rich and (dark) chocolatey.
There was a hint of the soft spices too (cardamom, cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg) which I'm sure will become more predominant as the flavours further develop. Can't wait.
Highly recommend this as a blend for anyone who appreciates the flavour traits I have described above. You won't be disappointed...
