A very unusual nose, both bitter and herbal as well as creamy and buttery. Coffee, licorice and brewed tea come to the fore with air. Smooth in the mouth with black spiced berry fruit that is tight but simple. Shows pretty good length but nothing standouts. Pleasant and ordinary. 85pts

Blackberry flavors. Thin feeling. Not bad, but I have had better at this price point. A little too much of an alcohol taste. Drink the day you open it. Not so good the second day.
