"Roasted nuts, caramel, cinnamon and fresh fruits leap right out of the glass. The palate is rich with bananas, brown sugar, mango, papaya, roasted coconut and pineapple sprinkled with nutmeg. More Christmas-y flavors emerge with tart apples, Chamomile tea and a flash of alcohol heat. Overall, very easy to sip if a tad on the sweet side. "
