Tasting Notes

"The nose is all vibrant fruit, with sliced mangoes, pineapple, and bright citrus from candied orange slices, fresh orange juice, and tangerines. The palate is a bouquet of herbs, with sage, rosemary, bay leaves, and anise, and also floral, with lavender and lilacs. The finish carries through the citrus to the end, and showcases purple gum drops, cassia bark, licorice, and white pepper."
