"There's a warm, amber color to the spirit. Spicy cinnamon, orange, and elderflower greet you on the nose, moderately so. Tasting this spirit, the flavors come in waves. First the warm spices, then apples and rhubarb. Next, bitter orange comes along. The sweetness to it all is mild. It is an intriguing and fun spirit, one that will make you go back to the glass again and again. Wouldn't be a bad pairing with a simple dessert like angel food cake or a cheese course. Serve slightly chilled."
