"The bouquet of orange blossoms, fresh strawberries, jasmine, and candied citrus peel is difficult to resist, making one wonder whether one is smelling a brandy or some novel recipe of Turkish delight. But this is indeed a spirit, and quite a pretty one; the palate continues our journey through the confectioners' flavor basket, rounding out the finish with dashes of oolong tea, aniseed, and candied violet."
