    taste

    A medium-bodied cup which feels ample in the mouth and beams with sweet-green attributes. It starts out with distinct notes of pleasant greens which intermingle with delicious stone-fruity characters, akin to peach to define the central theme of the liquor. Subtle nutty undercurrents are discernible around the edges, which gradually subside to finish on lush citrusy intonations. Furtive notes of green figs lingers on in the aftertaste, making for a captivating finale.
