Tasting Notes

"Surprisingly fruity, with pleasant aromas of fresh apples and oranges, balanced by chocolate and vanilla. Some varnish is a further indication of a long maturation period. The palate is gentle and superbly balanced. Sweet vanilla, oranges and licorice all play well together, before lingering spices take over. A drink to savor and sip."
