    A medium-bodied, brisk cup which opens on a delicious register of stone-fruits akin to peach interlaced with a subtle texture of muskmelon; rendering sweet character and defining the taste profile of the liquor. These flavors resonate throughout, complemented by gentle nutty hints around the edges, adding a rich, rounded feel to the cup. Muted woody tones shore up towards the end, which however ebb to reveal citrusy-sweet flavors which lingers on; making for a distinctive and memorable experience of Autumnal Oolongs from Darjeeling.
