n: Chocolate cake heavy with gran marnier.  So, very orangy.

 

p:  Orange candy and varnish.  Hint of brownie.  Oily.  Sweet but not overly so.  Lip smacking good.

 

B+/A-

 
Fuji
 

N: Over sherried with melted twizzler and artificial cherry and berry flavors used in cough syrup and some juice concentrates. Dried pineapple, coffee and camphor.

 

P: Young cherry and green plum sourness that evolves into dark bitter chocolate and fudge. Dark fruit: raisin, plum, figs with just a hint of smoke emerging mid palate.

 

F: Long bitter black coffee and espresso finish

 

I thought this would be a tired stale sherry monster based on what I got from the nose. But it was surprisingly crisp and vibrant on the palate.
