Tasting Notes

"Dark chocolate is showcased on the nose, with apricots, raspberries, and syrupy trail mix. The palate is rich, with chocolate and spearmint to the tune of thin mint cookies, as well as salted chocolate truffles, cedar box, and baking spices. The finish continues hitting on rich sweetness highlighted by dark chocolate."
