Review and Tasting


Sampled on 03/12/2015

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Rose blossom, orange water, violet blossom and honey with apricot, stewed plums, black pepper and toasty oak.

Taste:

Light honey sweetness, orange marmalade and violets with ripe plums, red grapefruit and light peppery spice.

Aftertaste:

Peachy fruit emerges with lingering honeyed sweetness, almond and light peppery spice.

Overall:

A very aromatic and approachable, easy drinking, brandy-like spirit. Those expecting a dry brandy should be aware of this spirit's smoothing honeyed sweetness and faint rose blossom notes.
