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.
