Waterford Single Farm Origin Dunmore Edition 1.1, 50%

Price: $95 Issue: Winter 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Quite spicy up front, with pepper, ginger, and a touch of burnt spice, with Quaker Oatmeal Squares, dunnage floors, hazelnut, and slightly sour herbal notes of basil and tarragon. There's a robust surge of pepperiness on the palate after an initial show of dark toffee, chocolate, and Americano, then it wallows in clove, cacao nibs, leather, Brazil nut, and baked fruits.
