Flavor Notes

Rich and complex, while the approachable proof point brings out lush sweetness and dark fruit.

  • Appearance

    Golden amber.

  • Nose

    An initial wave of honey, candied-strawberry, dark cherry, and grilled cantaloupe greet you. Notes of lavender and fennel emerge and are balanced by cocoa, brown butter, and cardamom. Grilled peaches and hazelnut linger, followed by a burst of lemon and lime zest with a touch of oily, waxy fruit peel. 

  • Palate

    Maple pecans, dark chocolate and cinnamon unfold and are quickly followed by rich flavors of tiramisu and cardamom cake, with a mouthfeel to match. This expands to include hints of fennel, lemongrass, and lemon zest, balancing the creamy, full-bodied mouthfeel.

  • Finish

    Creamy and sweet, emphasizing cinnamon, toffee, vanilla pudding.

    With water

    Even more viscous and creamy with the vanilla pudding evolving into bananas fosters. The citrus zest and the lemongrass become more elevated with notes of orange sherbet.
