"Herbal honey on the nose with lavender, Seville oranges, butterscotch, and fudge. The palate has a mix of richness with a sharper, astringent side from the acacia, along with orange and lemon peels, incense, white pepper, and a hit of baking spices. The finish showcases toffee with a continuing blend of citrus, spice, and wood, and a flourish of fiery cinnamon a la Red Hots. "
