    description

    A journey for your taste buds that begin with a medium-bodied, brisk cup that feels ample in the mouth. The crispness is followed by sweet notes bearing a strong resemblance to apricots which gradually gain prominence and hums along. As you approach the middle oaky flavors take over and mingle with the light floral undertones that add a layer of depth to the liquor. For a grand finish nutty flavors and delightful tones of peach make for a memorable experience.

    A medium-bodied, brisk cup which feels ample in the mouth and starts out on a crisp, fruity note akin to apricots which gradually gains prominence and hums along throughout. Towards the middle, pronounced oaky flavors can be perceived which mingle with light floral undertones around the edges, adding a layer of depth to the liquor. Muted nutty flavors come through towards the end, which however ebb to finish on delightful tones of peach, making for a memorable experience.
