"Dense fruit and spice aromas flutter out of the glass and meet the palate with toasty caramel, creamy vanilla, toffee and malted cocoa. A bit of orange peel flavor adds some tang and there's also a touch of key lime pie-like tartness. A subtle heat in the finish warms things up without sparking too much of a burn. In all it's a well-balanced, delightful drop. "
