    liquor

    aroma

    Marked by notes of apricot, chestnut, pralines and hints of burnt wood

    appearance

    Dark Amber

    taste

    The liquor is full-bodied, supple and feels ample in the mouth. Delectable fruity tones, akin to apricot envelop the palate right at the start and render a distinct texture to the cup. Subtle undertones of burnt wood interlaced with delicate cocoa-like flavors is discernible towards the middle, adding a layer of depth and vivacious intensity to the liquor. Light nutty flavors come through towards the finish, which however ebb to finish on a delicious sensation of pecan pralines; making for a memorable Chinary experience this summer.
