    Light gold

    taste

    A light-bodied, immensely smooth cup which tastes fresh and starts with a soft floral tonality, redolent of peony blossom and white orchids. The palate is filled with an aromatic suppleness with the flavors gradually gaining prominence as you make your way through the cup. Furtive green undertones shore up around the edges interlaced with delectable tones of muskmelon, rendering greater depth and mellow character to the liquor. Vibrant notes of freshly-zested citron come through in the aftertaste, making for an invigorating experience.
