Tasting Notes

"Tinned peaches with a good amount of cinnamon is found on the nose, which is fresher than expected. There's also some burlap, rose water and elderflower. The palate is super creamy and rather well-balanced. Some soft spices are lifted by strawberries, raspberries, cherry syrup and a whisper of cocoa powder. It displays a level of sweetness that feels very comfortable."
