Tasting Notes

"The nose is sweet, fresh and fruity with tropical fruits, cherry clafoutis, pear drops as well as some pastry notes of croissants and orange juice. The palate delivers more oaky aromas and also summer berries, vanilla, grapefruit and a spicy note of Tabasco. Just the kind of dram for a summer evening that would perfectly pair with a fresh fruit salad or raspberry sorbet."
