Pronounced aroma of freshly scalded and peeled apricot with a hint of orange blossom and nectarine. A touch of cinnamon and candy rounds off the first adventure.
Fresh and ripe apricot supported by tingling citrus mixed with oriental spiciness. The fruit-driven, oily body is elegantly balanced by almond and amaretto-like bitterness.
