Tasting Notes

"Fresh rye notes appear immediately with powerful aromas of caramelized bananas, orange peel, and raw cacao. That said, the palate is the most impressive with a soft texture and an evolution of flavors that hits all the corners of your tongue. There’s a dollop of spice that transitions into sweet vanilla and ends with bitter chocolate."
