Colour: Gold backed with hints of shimmering Linden bark. Beautiful clarity.
Nose: Fragrant, intense, delicious. Swirls of sweet cream. Beeswax, creamed coconut. Fresh mandarin. A touch of white chocolate. Ripe and juicy fruit. Yellow peach and apricot. Surprisingly fresh herbal aromas. Tarragon infused in vanilla syrup. Muntok white pepper.
Palate: Crisp, almost like coarse silk. Mellowness makes itself slowly known. Notes of vetiver and dry nuts. Oak, mixed with citron bark, reveals its lustre with firmness and elegance.
Finish: Dry, spicy. Ginger, Szechuan pepper. It fades gently with soft notes of almond milk.
