Tasting Notes

"The nose offers a combination of honeyed sweetness with floral notes, along with vanilla sweetness with toffee. A somewhat oily palate begins with honey and showcases straw, and a touch of black pepper and spice, along with a mix of stone and orchard fruits. A moderate length, rich finish showcases butterscotch and clover honey. "
