"The nose is deliciously gourmet, sweet and fruity with baked pears, pastries, apple crumble, lemon curd and cinnamon rolls among many other yummy aromas. The palate is thick and mellow and delivers an incredible complexity with multiple layers of flavors. These range from sweet spices, sandal wood, and marzipan to milk chocolate, roasted nuts and floral notes. The aftermath simply is the cherry on the cake."
