    taste

    A pleasantly supple, light-bodied cup which starts with delectable notes of cantaloupe interlaced with a vibrant green texture. These flavors percolate throughout the length and define the central theme of the liquor. Muted accents of mangosteen shore up around the edges which gradually ebb to reveal furtive floral tones towards the finish; rendering greater depth and vivacious intensity to the cup. Fleeting accents of vine peach in the aftertaste make for a distinguished experience.
