750ml cork and cage bottle poured into a snifter

No bottle date, but judging where I got it from its probably 3-5 years old

A- pours a deep Amber-ruby color with a thin creamy khaki colored head that retains nicely, leaving some short lasting lace behind.

S- dark fruit aroma up front of fig and raisin. Sweet caramel & fruit bread, brown sugar, earthy & herbal

T- almost had a saltiness to it up front with notes of oxidization, cardboard. Mid-palate gives some dark fruity notes of raisin and fig, Christmas fruit cake, brown sugar. Finished with toasted bread crust, more dark fruit and a salty linger

M- medium body with low carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel and salty finish

O- I'm beginning to think that this bottle is older than 3-5 years, strange saltiness keeps it off balance

Large bottle, caged and corked, I could find no bottling date, nor vintage info.

Pours clouded and dull looking darker amber. Moderate fine lacing left on the glass.

Malty and ripe fruit nose

Pleaseing Bwine,note of rum saoked raisins, caramel, malty notes. Soft, mellow and satisfying. Easy drinking for the ABV
