Tasting Notes

We all mentioned cherries on the nose neat, boozy chocolate coated cherries, black ‘mountain cherry’ liqueur as well as an aviation cocktail which led us all to fly high. On the palate the descriptors were not as unison and ranged from lighter fuel, marker pens and oiled leather, to pear drops and vanilla essence and finally coco beans and nutmeg in hessian sacks. Water added rough farmhouse cider, melted candles, Turkish delight and cod liver oil on the nose while to taste we flew again, in fact to the city of Zadar on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. There we enjoyed a cocktail of the same name consisting of Maraschino liqueur, amarena premium syrup and rum garnished with a maraska candied cherry.
