    taste

    A full-bodied, mellow cup which starts out with delectable malty notes which gradually grow into prominence and define the central theme of the liquor. Subtle sweet undertones, redolent of yellow raisins interlaced with pleasant, floral accents come through around the edges; rendering more depth and vivacious intensity to the cup. Mild cocoa-like flavors come through towards the end, which however ebb to finish on delightful stone-fruity flavors; which lingers on making for a sublime finish.
