Tasting Notes

The Great Hammersma

“We came to us via ‘appassimento’ , lightly dried grapes. Thus: higher concentration of smell and taste. Also: three years aging in barrel. And that also adds a penny or three in the bag. Violin Schools. Chocolate bitters with truffle. Roasted Nut Scenario. Blackberries in vanilla puff pastry. A proof of anise. Fennel suspicion. A variety of blackcurrant liqueur. Spices in rows. But beware: then come the acids. Inserting, zipping, spinning and free. Violin Schools. Chocolate bitters with raisins. Cherry Pie. Blackberries in puff pastry covered with pastry cream. Blackcurrant liqueur. Spices in rows. But beware: then come the acids. Inserting, zipping, swaying and free.”
