    aroma

    appearance

    Dark Amber

    taste

    A medium-bodied, pleasantly supple cup which feels ample in the mouth and starts with a pronounced oaky character which mingles with roasted-nutty accents towards the middle and defines the flavor profile of the liquor. Furtive stone-fruity tones akin to apricot interlaced with a light musky character are discernible around the edges, rendering greater depth and texture to the cup. Delightful tones of cocoa shore up towards the finish, which lingers on making for a memorable experience of Muscatels this season.
