Tasting Notes

"Rich hazelnut and vanilla fill the glass, as secondary aromas of chocolate fudge, walnuts, honey and orange peel emerge. On the palate, more roasted nut flavors mix with warm caramel, cinnamon, pear and roasted coffee flavors. The finish brings fresh mint, caramel apple, and nougat before a final, bitter chocolate note."
