Sun warmed oranges, warm sand, grandma’s home made honey cake. With time the fluffy clouds of citrus come more into focus. This is so complex and appealing. I do not think I need to taste this at all.. But of course I will!
Full bodied and sublimely refined from the first sip. This is quality nectar. Lots of flavors but they are all subdued, as if in reverence to the liquid itself. Dark chocolate with distinct Saville orange notes. Exotic spices and hints of toasted oak. Cinnamon and nutmeg as well with time.
Very long finish. the same chocolate and orange mix that first made an appearance on the palate. Refined, exquisite and elusive at the same time. The flirting with bitterness and oaky dryness is enticing, and draws me in for another sip and again .. and again. Whispers of eucalyptus in the background.
