Tasting Notes by onoelo

On the nose, a gentle waft of beeswax opening up to honey, followed by distant yet distinct flavours of cinnamon, basel, Sinhalese pine, lemon peel, quince and vanilla. Chilly powder. Palate: Big. Waxen and chocolate malt-sugar sweet. Clotted cream, Italian lemon, dried fruits - nectarines, apricot, Asian gooseberries and tangerines. French Mirabelle jam. Half a teaspoon of water highlights the multi-sherried wood, wax, honey, and vanilla, but depresses the fruit. Traces of Picpoule armagnac. Finish: Long and luxurious. Doesn't lose anything. Just glorious. Punchy yet divinely elegant. Rajasthani Asha, Kutch Mahua, Asian kitchen mash. Maybe that’s why it’s sold in Asia only!
