"Initially quite aggressive on the nose, but a couple of minutes in the glass chills Huana out and reveals pleasant aroma reminiscent of almost overly ripe pear. On the palate, the pear flavor comes through, but pineapple flavor are also prominent. Of course, it’s hard to mistake the underlying rum flavor from which the liqueur made, as well as a slight but lingering bitter aftertaste. "
