Although this one isn’t quite ready yet, I tasted the wort and if I do say so myself it was amazing! It has a nice after taste of cinnamon with a small aroma of cloves and a little bite from some ginger. So I thought I would throw it out there! However if you’re not a fan of mulled wine then this one definitely isn’t for you, as it has a distinctive mulled flavour.
